Summary

Education is key to ensuring wild tigers have wild futures. Since 2010 we've provided 3135 education packs for children in 32 villages around Bandhavgarh to enable them to go to school. Rural poverty & the cost of basic books & pens often prevents many children from going to school. Without education their future prospects are bleak, with limited employment options leading to an increased dependency upon the land & further pressure on shrinking tiger habitat. We now want to help 500 more.

Challenge

COVID amplified the impact of a burgeoning human population on India's wild tigers & their habitat. Human-animal conflict also increased due to COVID's economic impact. In Bandhavgarh's 100+ villages 50%+ of families have 4+ children. The educational prospects for many of these children are limited by the poverty of their parents & the long term closure of state schools. The poorest families have income under 5/$7 a week, no electricity and funding schooling for their children is impossible.

Solution

Our education packs give children a chance to improve critical literacy skills; future employment prospects & reduce their dependency on land. We need to work with a local NGO to deliver schooling to the poorest children who don't have access to remote learning. Literate students will have better job prospects including protecting wildlife & its habitat rather than destroying it-creating positive impacts on wildlife; reducing human-animal conflict; & discouraging future tiger poaching

Long-Term Impact

Our project will provide educational resources for Bandhavgarh's poorest children when they need them most. It will help to improve children's literacy & enhance the prospect of future wild tiger survival. Educated families have fewer kids: if they're educated the potential for future population stabilisation is enhanced; which will reduce the dependency on scarce forest resources. Our educational resources are obtained locally to support the community interdependencies on wild tiger survival.
