Habitat loss, climate change, and conflict with humans threaten the survival of several wildlife species. We support nonprofit organizations leading on-the-ground conservation projects, as well as education and economic incentive efforts. We are working to protect big cats with WWF India, Asiatic elephants with Nature Conservation Foundation, and Asiatic wild buffaloes with Wildlife Trust of India.
Education and awareness are powerful tools in the fight to protect the natural world. Many of our grantees are working to educate and empower people to be good stewards of the planet. Among the programs we fund are the Centre for Science and Environment’s Green Schools program, which equips teachers with tools and resources to advance sustainability in schools, and Centre for Wildlife Studies’ Wild Shaale program, which provides conservation education to thousands of students.
The agriculture industry serves as a key source of livelihood for communities across the country. Our grantees build capacity in agrarian communities by leveraging technology, research, and education about sustainable farming. We support BAIF Development Research Foundation, Digital Green Foundation, Dilasa Janvikas Pratishthan, and MS Swaminathan Research Foundation in their efforts to educate and empower farming communities in rural India.
