Story

Dear kind donors, this fundraising is to cover the initial set up costs of 'WithNature Library Project' from WithNature Institute and Foundation.

“In the end, we will conserve only what we love;
we will love only what we understand and
we will understand only what we are taught.”
- Baba Dioum, 1968, New Delhi

Conservation optimism
WithNature, a volunteer based not-for-profit platform follows a ‘love-for-nature’ approach in an attempt to educate children, youth and general public about nature inclusion and sustainable living. Through classic and contemporary media, the platform aims to target different levels of youth and general public with knowledge projects, audience aimed awareness programmes and engagement initiatives.

Knowledge centers
WithNature Library Project is a free public library initiative to cater children, youth, rural and urban communities. The libraries function as knowledge centers to advocate children and general public about 'why' and 'how' of nature conservation and sustainable practices. The project is an effort to share the love for nature, importance for its inclusion into our daily lives and create a sense of responsibility to conserve it.

Mission statement: To spread love and responsibility for nature
