We are going to create a 50 minute long interactive presentation. We will share our story, and frequently ask the audience questions about their thoughts and experiences in doing environmental advocacy.
This project will expose the women to different opportunities such as new projects' ideas, skills and mindset change. This will be possible through connecting them with various opportunities such as entrepreneural projects and get them involved in decisions making as well as creating changes as a group.
Through FUNDERS & DONOR'S, The BEEKEEPING project will provide a continuous experience for the people involved, and get more people involved in activities that will increase their knowledge concerning Conservation And hence will reduce the impacts towards Environment. Establishment of this project relies on the founding of 200 hives on community land as well as the training of key people in beekeeping skills.
Snakes and forest ecosystem: Exploring knowledge of Indigenous communities of Nagarhole National Park

Please watch our film and share with your schools and public administrators about planting native plants for pollinators in school gardens and public places. Find out how on our page. Jane Goodall and Roots and Shoots are one of our partners. www.pollinatorsunderpressure.org
The garden is being installed in phases. We began in May and are continuing over the summer. We hope to have everything planted by the fall and complete the signage during the winter and spring. We have 3 species’ sections planted so far, yarrow, narrow-leaf milkweed and hummingbird sage.
The experiences are held in rain and sunshine, mountains and forests, river waters and waterfall, oceans and seas where the children get to experience all possible flavours of nature. Experiences are conducted in the outskirts of Mumbai in locations like Karjat, Pali, Kamshet, Kolad, Palghar also giving the young minds, a glimpse of beautiful local Indian cultures. We do fun activities like - stick building, rock stacking, journey Stick, Organic farming, Forest art & games garland making, participating in farming, cooking and cleaning; adventurous stuff like trekking, rock climbing, river swimming etc. Participants are encouraged to record their experiences the old-school way for Children of Tribe journals; Based on modern and slightly worrying truth that the city kids learn to walk on even, concrete and carpeted surfaces. But when they are eventually faced with an uneven surface, they will be unwillingly out into danger as they do not know how to use the space and how to walk. With Children of Tribe, my wish is to feed onto a child’s innate need for risk but with reasonable risk in order to prevent them finding greater risks for themselves at later stages of life. The other driving principle of Children of Tribe experiences is Sustainable thinking & sustainable living. These experiences are steeped in No Plastic; Consume Less; Give Back concepts. So, Children of Tribe provides experiences which are fun in an unplugged way! Just for a few hours, say bye bye to ‘gadgets & e-play’ instead, get your hands dirty in mud.
The goal is to create fundraising events for the Jane Goodall Institute, power-points for teachers to use to educate their students, and to tell at least 100 people about my project so more people can be aware of its goal! I will mostly spread the word through family, friends, and the local schools in my area. Though, if my project starts to take off, I will probably go online in order to reach a larger group of people. To make an even greater impact, in order to save everything I, and all nature lovers, care about.
We will take a tour of the facility/organization and go back at a later date to volunteer to sort seeds.
My Roots & Shoots club will hold a bakesale to sell various baked goods and other food items to raise money to send to an organization to support communities affected by the recent natural disasters.
