Dear Kind Supporter,
We are pleased to let you know that with your support, we recently distributed 500 solar lamps to poor, meritorious students living on the remote K-Plot, L-Plot and Maipith islands in the Sundarbans.
All the 500 students who receive the solar lamps will be inducted into ASED's youth nature leadership program, the Green Rhinos Program.
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!
We are pleased to let you know that with your support, 500 poor, meritorious students in the Sundarbans will receive solar lamps on 16 and 17 September 2013! They will receive the lamps at ceremonies which will be organized at the campus of ASED's partner organization in the Sundarbans, Baikunthapur Tarun Sangha.
In addition, 4 school hostels will receive solar strip lights benefitting close to 200 students who live and study in these hostels.
Watch out for our next report!
