The Kemri Conservation Project, sponsored by HSBC India engaged 20 IAYP Gold Award participants successfully in a residential setting. The group travelled to the project site near Udaipur, Rajasthan in 2 batches. Designed with two key prioririties of ecological restoration/conservation and community outreach, the project allowed the participants to work on teamwork and get a sense of leadership in the fight against climate change.
The Kemri Conservation Project allowed me to meet some of my peers from different HSBC locations in
Our daily walks into the forest to sight various species of flora and fauna, the presentations and explanations given by our project leader at Kemri conservation gave me an entirely new perspective on climate change and the effect it can have. Even though we were a small team to work with, I am sure each one of us volunteers grabbed enough information and sustainable methods that will seed out to our friends and their friends in a matter of time.
Srikanth Ganti, summarising his experience :
“The Award has provided us a wonderful opportunity to feel the urge and work for the community. I am very satisfied and happy after spending quality time exploring the beauty of the nature and take part in conserving it. The long treks across the terrain envisage more on the need to conserve nature and preserve the ecological balance. Watching birds and understanding them creates a strong sense of responsibility to protect the nature.”
After the Kemri experience, I have been doing my own bit for the environment. Thanks to Mayur and team for this interesting, inspiring, insightful and illuminating journey of my life. I also urge people to be more enthusiastic and opt for IAYP and experience the exhilarating, enervating and extravagant journey at KEMRI and enlighten self that merely “feeling” the brand is totally different from “being” the brand.”
