Lotus Rescue Community Project, West Bengal

In West Bengal, we collaborated with Lotus Rescue, a local NGO based in Kolkata, working with women and children. This project ran for over a year, from October 2020 to December 2021. We trained teachers from all their centres to implement our Environmental Learning Program. 

Some of the GFI-led activities in Lotus Rescue centres around the year were:

  • Environmental Learning Program: Modules and workshops with educators and children

  • Waste Management: Initiating composting, upcycling and recycling of plastic through Green Pari

  • Eco-friendly distribution of mid-day meals: Shifted from disposable plates to steel plates

  • Commemorated various environmental days at learning centres to create awareness and ignite action

  • Initiated kitchen gardening and composting activities in a few centres

  • Awareness towards reduction of plastic usage at centres

  • Weekly Friday Clean-Ups: Around centres and surrounding areas

  • Using art as a medium for social change

They are continuing with awareness and weekly cleanliness drives. We look forward to collaborating with them in the future to help bring about a comprehensive waste management solution in the community.


This project was funded by Kolkata Calling and individual donors.
