Nowhere are the challenges posed by pollution and global warming felt more keenly than in India. The steadily increasing heat and smog and more intense flooding and droughts hit those already living on the margin the hardest. In many locations are the need to enforce environmental protection and fight back against these effects.
VOICE Trust works in harmony with nature to mitigate these impacts: we collaborate with farmers to reduce the use of toxic chemicals and to increase soil stability and crop resiliency in the face of severe wind and rain, and we have taken a forceful role in:
- Planting trees to slow global warming and increase climate resilience;
- Training communities to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste, in order to control environmental pollution and contamination;
- Instilling a passion for environmental protection in the next generation through educational programs in schools;
