Working directly with Non Government Organisations to have the greatest impact possible
Our goal is to help feed and educate children that are in the poorest regions that simply wouldn’t have the opportunity otherwise.
The School of St Jude
In February 2002, Gemma Sisia (nee Rice) from Northern NSW in Australia, founded The School of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa.
Natures Organics’ donations over the past several years have contributed towards extensive building works, critical food and educational resources at the School of St Jude, which has allowed more students to receive a free, high-quality education and help them to escape the cycle of poverty.
Reaching The Unreached
RTU is a secular organisation operating in the Tamil Nadu area of Southern India. It was founded in 1975 by Brother James Kimpton to help tackle the extreme poverty he saw in the villages.
Natures Organics has chosen to become directly involved with the RTU Housing Project. This project was set up to provide a better living environment for the rural poor who typically live in shacks made of mud and thatched palms. The shelters provide little respite from the harsh weather conditions in Southern India and have to be replaced every year.
Cambodian Children's Fund
Scott Neeson left his entire life behind him and moved to Cambodia to establish his first orphanage after he discovered that children were living on the Steung Menchey Garbage dump in some of the worst living conditions you will find on the planet.
Since 2008, Natures Organics has been dedicated to helping support housing and education infrastructure including bus transport and computers.

"We aren't here to give once, we're here for a lifetime"
When we were in Nepal, we found that there were lots of kids living in the street who had nowhere to go, many of them without parents, so we found an orphanage and asked what was going on and if we could help fund the kids.
That started our journey from there.
A trip to Cambodia’s infamous rubbish dump at Steung Meanchey the following year was another eye opener for me.
There were three and four year old children with plastic bags melted to their arms…it was the most horrific thing I’ve seen in my life.
There is so much we can do as humans to help beyond looking in our own backyard and I decided I would dedicate my life to doing everything I can to support these people. When you see these these kids now are at university and it’s just amazing to see the change it’s had.
We always give an allocated portion to each group every month, no matter what, because the biggest challenge for a lot of charities is finding sustainable income. The hard part is the economy is so bad now that the first thing big companies do is pull back their charity funding.
We’ve found it as hard as anyone to maintain the performance of the business, but we have that commitment to the organisations we support and we won’t back down from that.
