The Philippines is one of the mega-diverse countries of the world rich in natural resources and culture. The need to ensure it is protected throughout generations is a responsibility of every Filipino. To make sure that sustainable practices are shared and passed on.
Therefore, I will join 10 Impact Explorers from around the world for an epic voyage to north east India for some Bear Grylls style adventures - if you like me to hear the call of nature and if you can feel your heart beating for an escape to the Himalayan Highlands to roam with tigers in the wild then please support me!
As an Impact Explorers I am doing this Fund Raising Challenge for my first Mission to Meghalaya in north east India. On the 20th November I will do a cross country trek for 16 km along the historic David Scott Trail starting from the Lyngdoh clan sacred forest to the Cherrapunjee the rainiest place on earth. I will also be doing this to raise money for Providence School in Shillong and the agroforestry project in Meghalaya.
1. We will plant 100 native fruit trees at the project site and other villages we visit.
2. We will support the establishment of an eco village with 10 huts at one project site.
3. We will support the mid day meals for 300 poor children at Providence School.
4. Most importantly, I will bring home the best practices that sustains the community and the culture of Meghalaya and replicate the efforts of sustainability in our local communities in the Philippines
I particularly planned to replicate the idea in the Sierra Madre Mountain Range - the Longest mountain range in the Northern Most part of the archipelago which stretches from the provinces from the North to the South. This mountain range, which fronts the Pacific Ocean plays a very important role in preventing typhoons in directly hitting the land. It is also a home to diverse communities, tribes, plants and animals.
Sustainability knowledge and best practices is best learned through grass root experience, it should be shared and nurtured. I want to bring back to my homeland the Meghalaya experience and make it a challenge for us to act together for sustainability!
So please donate generously!
