Dear Kind Supporter,

As this year draws to a close, over 1100 Green Rhinos wish you a very happy 2014!

In 2013 they planted over 7000 trees! Shefali Maity, a teenage girl in the Sundarbans, raised 100 tree saplings! She along with her fellow Green Rhinos from school, with the assistance of their schoolmaster, planted 1500 trees in school and around their homes.

In 2014 some of the projects the Green Rhinos have planned are:

  • 16500 tree saplings to be planted
  • 4 waterbodies to be cleaned
  • Environmental awareness campaigns to be conducted
  • Bio-fertiliser to be made from throw away organic waste in school and used as fertiliser in the school campus.

In 2014 we hope to work with more schools in urban areas, including Kolkata, and continue our work with the schools in the Sundarbans.

Thank you so much for being a part of our team!

With prayers for peace and happiness,

Diti Mookherjee
