We have known Vanita Tai to lead ecocultural walks and traditional ecological knowledge workshops in Aarey forest, showing people how the tribals live sustainably and in harmony with nature. She has cooked many delicious tribal meals and told us stories of leopards and important adivasi rituals.
Vanita Tai (instructor in the cente) has also brought together women from her village, to teach them the skill of making low smoke rocket stoves and ensure that they earn a daily wage through this.
She has enthusiastically led the events and programmes to help her community and the forests. We have seen her belief in self-sufficiency right from growing food to making mud houses and lobbying for the rights of indigenous people. Even after a leopard attack on her, she firmly believes that Aarey forest is the home of Leopards and should be treated as a deity.
Building her home generates local employment with only local materials in an ecologically harmonious way. It preserves traditional methods and promotes local culture. Let's come forward and help Tai in her efforts with any donation amount ppossible and share this with your friends
