The children's trees are thriving

With the help of some generous donations locally, we were able to purchase enough saplings to give to each child at the Siruganur school who has a birthday in September or October. Janet Preethi, the project director, visited the school to talk about how planting trees can help slow global warming and to present the saplings, along with birthday cards signed by some of our supporters locally and around the world. The children enjoyed getting the cards, which designated them Climate Change Superheroes and which were signed by friends from as far away as Cameroon and California. 

This week, we returned to the school to see how things were going.  All the trees are strong and healthy;  we were pleased to see that our idea of gifting the trees to the children on their birthday sees to have inspired them to make sure to provide the needed nurturing. One of the girls we talked with said how happy it made her when she came in the morning to water her tree and could see how well it was growing.

Unfortunately, GlobalGiving has not yet been able to resolve the regulatory problem that is keeping them from being able to disburse our funds, and has indicated that it will be at least until March before they will be able to do so.  As a result, we will not be able to gift any more saplings till at least the spring.

Thanks again for supporting our work -- we'll keep you posted.

Gratefully, 

Janet Preethi
