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

We are excited to let you know that 30 Green Rhinos from Maipith and K-Plot islands in Sundarbans and 14 Green Rhinos in Kolkata have received leadership training. They have designed projects which they are conducting with their fellow students/ friends.  The projects the  Green Rhinos have taken up include:

  • Planting over 4000 tree saplings in Sundarbans
  • Inventory of animals and birds in a cluster of Sundarbans villages 
  • Garbage clean up in a cluster of Sundarbans villages
  • Educating over 1500 people in Kolkata about the wise use of plastic bags 
  • Anti-littering education campaign and installing dustbins in strategic areas in Kolkata through their own fund-raising
  • Creating Green Rhinos in a tea garden community in Assam.

The Program is being well received by the youth, the parents, school teachers and the community. We look forward to creating many, many more Green Rhinos and together making a positive impact on nature conservation in the days to come.

We sincerely thank you for your support. Do spread the word and encourage others to join the movement to create more Green Rhinos!
