Greetings from Sustainable Life Trust, a grass roots level registered NGO based at Dharmapuri, Tamilnadu, India working since 1997 in the field of social development sector, which deals with a broad range of environmental issues. The Trust implements its mission through campaigns and practical activities, public information and involvement with community participation.
Sustainable Life Trust is planning to organize a campaign -"Save Thenpennai River" with the aim of creating awareness about the present environmental situation of the river among the residents in the riverbanks of Thenpennai and to motivate the people to save and protect stream flows in Thenpennai to sustain healthy aquatic ecosystems from 27th Jan 2014 to 15th Feb, 2014. We (20 like-minded, environmental conscious people in NGOs, CBOs and environmental activist youth groups) are going to travel around 400 Kms in 20 days and will meet 50000 people approximately and also convey the message about the protection of the River as well as importance of rain water harvesting, tree planting, impacts of climate change, water and gender, and impart people’s rights for safe and clean-protected water for drinking purpose through interactive meeting, awareness meeting in schools and colleges and cultural programmes.
The amount that we need around 10000 US$ in total which is for printing publicity materials like posters, brochures, handouts, stickers and traveling, food, documentation and media, prizes and certificates for schools and college students etc.,
We really feel that the campaign will be done only with the donations mobilized through people who are concerned with our natural resources. Kindly support us in particular donations. Any donations small or large will help our endeavors.
Thanks and regards
