Project Report | Nov 28, 2014
A profound, moving and educational experience

By Aman Singh | Project Leader

Planing and training session with pastoralists
Planing and training session with pastoralists

The project undertaken conservation of ‘Orans’ community forest and grazing land; activities includes building rainwater harvesting structures, trees plantation, community skill development training and so on. A group of 13 leaders from different countries, made a two days (3-4 Nov. 2014) visit to the project. And, their quest was:

  • What do we want humanity to be?
  • What really matters in life?
  • What is our personal role in helping to enable the world to be a better place?
  • What do we need to shift in ourselves internally before we can effectively engage as leaders of change externally?

After visiting the project, their experiences read as, “Dear Amanji, Back in rainy UK after a wonderful end to the Pow Wow in Rajasthan, I wanted to write to thank you wholeheartedly for being such a wonderful host to our group who came to spend time with you, the community and the Oran at Bera. The group were all moved in different ways – by your passion, bravery and humility over the years, by the relaxed generosity with which we were greeted in the village, by the walk to the Oran.   Realising that a tiger had crossed our path that very morning was a delight and the visit to the Mahatma was rich indeed - his humour, wisdom and irreverence a delightful and thought provoking mix!! Thank you for taking such care with all the details of organisation.  This was a profound, moving and educational experience for us all which will never be forgotten------.” Nigel Topping, Facilitator of the Leaders’ Quest, as write through e-mail.
