India & Nepal Trip February 2016

yltw-india1.jpgIn February 2016 OzGREEN Co-Founder and CEO Sue Lennox was accompanied on a trip to India and Nepal by YLTW Facilitators Ruby Tavener and Ali Thwaites. Ruby and Ali raised their own funds to cover costs as well as making a donation to the Sankat Mochan Foundation. They played a key role in YLTW Facilitator Trainings in Varanasi and Kathmandu.

The health of River Ganges is of increasing concern and the worst we have ever seen. Now more than ever the need for effective interception, diversion and treatment of sewage is critical. The Sankat Mochan Foundation is stepping up to the challenge with renewed energy. The trip in February was an important opportunity to review and define strategy and plan next steps.

Ruby Tavener has written a reflection of her experience and wrote a moving blog whilst in India - 'Becoming a Global Citizen'
