Projects on the ground where IWC volunteers can help-Online Club to Ground level activities

1.  Ashish Jain , an SBI Youth for India Fellow*, is in charge of an education  project under the NGO "Gram Vikas" in Orissa. The project involves  working with students of class 3 rd to 7th standard in a tribal school in Ganjam District.  Two IWC members who are proficient in Oriya have volunteered to work with Ashish in his project to create educational tools for children.  We believe that nature around the area can become a learning place for these children who will be able to connect easily  with their immediate surroundings.   The volunteers associated are Satyasarathi Mishra(satyaawild@gmail.com), an MSc in wildlife and biodiversity conservation and Shankar Kanhar, (sankarkanhar@outlook.com)  who is a freelance photographer.   

*SBI Youth for India is a fellowship programme initiated, funded and managed by the State Bank of India in partnership with reputed NGOs. It is a movement for India's best young minds who are passionate about fuelling positive change in India. It provides a framework for India's best young minds to join hands with rural communities, empathise with their struggles and connect with their aspirations.  (www.youthforindia.org ).

2. Anita Nandkumar, who is currently pursuing the Leadership Course in Bio-diversity from Bombay Natural History Society (http://indianwildlifeclub.com/Courses/BNHS/LCBC.aspx)   has decided to activate the Eco-Club in her neighbourhood school as a part of her BNHS coursework.  On Gandhi Jayanthi Day, she announced the activation of a nature club.  Shashi Sharma of IndianWildlifeClub.com addressed the students for about half an hour explaining the importance of the web of life.  The students were attentive and all hands went up to join the nature club activities.
