The Butterfly Tree

The butterfly tree charity supports rural communities in Zambia decimated by the HIV and aids pandemic – providing safe water, feeding programs, improved health and education facilities, malaria prevention, sustainable community projects and an orphan support program – all funds go directly to the cause – no administration fees are deducted  – all members are volunteers.

The Butterfly Tree charity was founded by Jane Kaye-Bailey after a business incentive trip to Zambia with her late husband, Lawrence, in February 2006. During a visit to the Mukuni Village they learned about the decimation caused by HIV/AIDS in Zambia,  every family had been affected. Out of 1000 pupils in the school, 450 were orphans.  Shocked and disturbed by what she had discovered Jane was determined to find a way to raise funds and awareness to help these vulnerable children.

In April 2006 vigilant about where the money would go, Jane and her son David, returned to Mukuni Village to offer further assistance, taking with them medical supplies for the clinic, clothing for the orphans, books and stationery for the school. They met the Chieftainess, the Prime Minister and the School’s Head Teacher, Presley Mulenga, gaining knowledge of what could be done to improve the lives of these ‘needy’ people. Much of the time was spent at Mukuni Basic School learning about the orphans. They returned to the UK to continue fudraising and to started the process of forming a charity.
