With our series of community engagement information sessions wrapped up it’s time to start planning our January trip to India. We have a group of enthusiastic people ready to embark on an exciting journey into rural India to share their skills and experience with local NGOs to help support grass roots projects. CERES Global has been working with local people and NGOs for the last six years to support the implementation of a variety of sustainable projects in rural India to benefit the environment and the local community. This January we will be working across all five community engagement areas (Climate Action; Environmental Education; Schools and Kindergardens; Health; and Empowering Women). Some of the work we will be doing will involve:

- documenting the lives of women who belong to a women’s group outside Pitchandikulum in South India;
– developing and trialling a health education program for young women in the tribal village of Pal in Central India;
– visiting a progressive kindergarten group that doubles as an environmental education and women’s support group in a remote community in the foothills of the Himalayas.

There are still places available so if you are interested in finding out more about these projects or have an interest in another area of community engagement (Climate Action; Environmental Education; Schools and Kindergardens; Health; and Empowering Women) come along to one of our Information Sessions:

When: Thursday 14th October, Thursday 4th November
