500 more Green Rhinos!!

Dear Supporter,

We are thrilled to let you know that 500 more Green Rhinos were inducted into the Program on 19 and 20 September 2013 on 3 remote islands in the Sundarbans. These students from 6 local government schools received orientation about the Program which included a presentation on the “Nature of Sundarbans”.

50 Green Rhinos will be chosen from the 6 participating schools and will receive transformational leadership training in October/ November 2013. They will design a six month project which they will implement with fellow Green Rhinos in their school.

All the Green Rhinos received a solar lamp under ASED’s Solar Lamps Project as they live in non-electrified areas.

There are now 1100+ Green Rhinos in India! As part of their project, the Green Rhinos in the Sundarbans are planting 6000 tree saplings this month!

We thank you for being part of this great team!

With gratitude,

Diti
