Documentation of impact and limitations shall be prioritized; the monitoring and evaluation progress shall be explicit.
We are developing greenhouses in the Dhorpattan Tibetan Refugee Camp. We provide agriculture technique farming to farmers so that they can increase their productivity and income. We realize that climate change resiliency and economics is heavily tied together. By expanding financial inclusion and increasing economic activity in mountain communities, we are seeing that climate change adaptive capacity is also enhanced. We are also promoting traditional ways of growing indigenous crops and raising livestock. We are directly engaging the community, especially the youth, to gain from this combination.
We are going to build a Teaching Circle at the center of our organic garden mandala. This Teaching Circle will be a ring-shaped wooden planter with benches and overhead shade to make learners comfortable while they learn about plant based diets, the joys of growing food and how farm animals are friends, therapists, and individuals, not food. This grant will buy the materials to create this Teaching Circle, and with it we will be able to help people see, smell, taste and fully experience the truth we teach. This Teaching Circle will help change lives and we are very grateful.
