Solar Lights for a Girls' Hostel in Sundarbans!

Dear Donor,

We are excited to let you know that the hostel of the Debipur Karunamoyee Balika Vidyapith , the only girls' school in Maipith area in the Sundarbans, will be provided with at least 15 solar lights from three 74 watt solar panels. The girls' of the hostel come from underprivileged tribal and scheduled caste families. There are only 4 working solar lights for 40 girls (of which we had given 2 lights) and it is very difficult for them to study in the evening with kerosene lamps. The teachers of the school repeatedly requested ASED to help to light the hostel. After personally visiting the hostel with the ASED team, we have taken the decision to provide the lights. These will be installed on November 17, 2012.

We will also be providing individual lamps to poor, meritorious students in the new year.

During the Festival of Lights (Diwali), we encourage you, your family and friends, to donate a solar lamp to a deserving child in the Sundarbans!

Many thanks for your continued support,

With warm regards,

Diti

Green Rhinos making waves in the Sundarbans!

Green Rhino Leaders Training
Green Rhino Leaders Training

Dear Donor,

I just returned from delivering a training to 20 Green Rhino Leaders in the Sundarbans on 12 October 2012. There was much energy and excitement!

The Green Rhinos are making waves in the Sundarbans! They are planting 2000 tree saplings in and around their school this monsoon season. About 100 Green Rhinos in a girls' school have conducted a garbage cleaning drive for two months. The Headmaster has promised to install dustbins to keep the school surroundings clean.

Tomorrow, 17 October 2012 is Bonus Day when GlobalGiving will be matching all donations by 30%. Bonus Day starts at 12.01 EDT, which is 9.30 am Indian Standard Time, and ends 24 hours later.

Do get in your donations early and encourage your friends and family to do so. Let the Green Rhinos stomp ahead!

Thank you for your continued support,


Diti

More solar lamps to be given later this year!

Dear Donor,

Our project to provide poor, meritorious students with solar lamps is going well! We thank you for partnering with us.

Till now, 450 students have received individual solar lamps and more than 400 students are benefiting from the 7 sets of twin solar tube lights provided for school hostels and coaching centers. With the funds raised since then we will be providing more individual solar lamps as well as twin solar tube lights later this year.

The project has been very well received by the students, the teachers of the schools, the parents of the students and the community. The demand for the lights is ever increasing!

It is fulfilling to work with this project, which is helping to change the lives of many children and youth in the Sundarbans.

Thank you once again for your support.

Sincerely,

Diti Mookherjee
