From Dr. Hotlin Ompugusunggu’s U.S. tour to getting down in the dirt with seedlings, the past two months have been chock full! 

Besides being involved in the regular conservation activities, the last forest guardian meeting for the period of 2011-2012 was held.

Based on the core values and philosophy of HIH and ASRI – that community be at the center, involved in and own the solutions of change – our Forest Guardians have inspired a 45% increase in villages that have totally stopped logging. 

 In June, a wonderful new program called ASRI Kids began. This program aims to connect local children with the environment and with the many plants and animals in Gunung Palung National Park, to instill care for the environment. The children have been learning about what they can do to take care of our planet – and doing fun activities like making recycled paper, picking up litter, and making recycled notebooks. Like us on Facebook to see the adorable photographs of their activities!

Programs like the Forest Guardians and ASRI Kids, as well as organic farm training, reforestation, and the clinic itself, are all deeply interconnected, working in tandem to change the face of global health – from the roots up. We could not do it without you - Thank you for all that you do.

On that note, will you celebrate with us? We are excited that our partner ASRI’s 5thbirthday is so soon, on July 15th! Will you give ASRI a birthday gift, here on GlobalGiving?
