Environment


As educators and technologists, we believe that education and appropriate technologies have the power to change the world.  Our Managing Director, Prof. Mukerji, is Vice-Chairman at the Centre of Science for Villages (CSV), our official partner for the environment.  He is also on Maharashtra's Eco-Tourism Development Board, appointed by the leadership of the state.  Community leaders Salim, Mukesh, and Jitesh were invited to go to CSV in Wardha, and they learned first-hand various ecologically-friendly technologies to adopt in our community, including solar power, biogas, sun-baked air-pocket (thermal) bricks, eco-architectural design, and water harvesting and filtration.

In fact, beyond promoting eco-technologies in our community and beyond, we use filtered water and solar energy at our Usha Sewing Schools -- clean energy for community growth!  80% of diseases are water-borne, and preventing illness is even more powerful than medical treatment.  Our teachers and students enjoy good health and productivity, plus our medical camps see fewer cases of water-borne illnesses.

Our first whitepaper made waves in Parlaiment with leaders who (like us!) want to promote economic development with ecological nurturing. Our second paper opened public discussion on what we as a nation should be doing with our natural assets, for the benefit of all.  We've republished these two classics on medium.com, plus a strategy update that explains our Golden Triangle ecodevelopment model:

After many dreams and discussions with government officials about Kanha's amazing potential for night safaris and a 12-month business season, we are proud to announce that part of the park (at the Kanha-Kisli gate) is now open year-round. That's good news for tourists and for the community that supports them.
