Support Your Safari Teams Tadoba

For all those out there who clicked wow moments in the forest and can't wait to get back on their next safari ride, here's your chance to do something for our safari folks (drivers & guides) who make it all possible.
Friends not actively pursuing wildlife photography OR not been on safari trips have also been kind enough to step forward & support this campaign. Obliged & sincere thanks to each one of them.

SOME GROUND REALITIES…
  • Most drivers are paid based on the number of drives they do. With no gypsies allowed in the park, they aren't getting paid right now.
  • Those on salaries, earn only about 50% of what they actually need to run their homes. They frequently seek help from other earning members in the family. Right now they aren't receiving salaries either.
  • Considering they don't make enough in normal situations (and hence near-zero savings), one can imagine their helplessness during the Covid19 crisis.
  • The monsoon months of Jul to Sep are anyways closed for tourism - earlier months were hence an opportunity for them to earn enough & support their families till winter started. Unfortunately, most of this year’s season got locked down.
  • Looking at the current scenario, we don't even know if the parks will reopen for the next season in Oct. Moreover, the tourism sector is going to take a while to resume normal activity for obvious reasons.
In association with PROWL (NGO) and The Gypsy Drivers & Guides Association, this little initiative hopes to support 150 Safari Families for a month 
Let's join hands, contribute & help our safari teams (Tadoba) get through these difficult times. Do share with more friends and on your social networks. Stay safe!!!

My fundraiser *Support* *Your* *Safari* *Teams* *Tadoba* – was built on this premise. With contributions from *189* supporters, a sum of *Rs.255K* was raised on the Milaap platform. Our endeavor was to help safari guides & drivers during this difficult phase. The amount raised has been successfully utilized to organize essential supplies for them. With reliable on ground support from PROWL & help from safari drivers & guides association, we worked out a list of essential items that were needed. We then did our very best to ensure that our essentials kit was *customized* as far as possible to the items required.
Kit contents:  Atta 5 kg , Oil 5 litres ,Red chilli powder 1/2 kg , Salt 2 kg , Turmeric 100 g , Jeera powder 100 g , Dhania powder 100 g ,  Arhar dal 4 kg , Channa dal 3 kg , Sugar 5 kg , Tea leaves 1/2 kg, Dish washing soap 4 cakes, Detergent powder 1 kg , Detergent bar 250 g & Hair oil 100 g
Our kits have reached Tadoba and we have begun the distribution process in coordination with the safari drivers and guides association.                    
I have been receiving thank you messages from drivers and guides on *our* behalf.
It gives me immense joy to know that together, we helped our safari teams at a time they needed it the most, in a way that helped them as much as possible.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. May each of us continue to do whatever we can to help those in need.
Hoping for a better tomorrow. Stay Safe.
Signing off with warm regards,
