The Trust implements its mission through campaigns and practical activities, public information and involvement with community participation.

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.
