Two months into the esteemed mentorship program of The Generation Green (TGG) by WWF Nepal, mentees and mentor are collecting solutions and sending them to the places where it would be needed. That’s right.
The flood destroyed the properties and homes of one of the mentees Mr. Niroj Yogi under Mr. Ranjit Acharya, CEO of Prisma Advertising Agency, and people of Dallah village in Suryakot VDC , Bardiya, and they were living in an extremely bad condition. To provide relief to their fellow mentee and other 110 households of the village, Mr. Ranjit Acharya and his mentees, namely Ms. Sneha Bajrachary, Mr. Yuvraj Serpuja, Mr. Suman Neupane and Mr. Rudra Rokkaya, ran a ‘Fill the Bucket’ Challenge. The challenge called Rs. 1,200 from people and organizations to provide relief for the victims.
The amount was used for 2kg rice, 1kg lentils, 2 kg beaten rice, 4 toothbrushes with a medium sized toothpaste, a packet of mosquito coil, half liter packet of oil, a packet of salt, 4 packets of noodles, biscuits and jeevanjal each, two soaps one for washing clothes and the other for bathing purpose, that went into the bucket. Besides that, ECCA Nepal and Antenna Foundation, Mega Bank Limited, Nepatop, WWF, Youth Alliance for Environment (YAE) and other individual donors, too, chipped in cash and other items like WATASOL, for the relief. As the relief materials were distributed in the festive season, it brought some positive feelings for the residents, who were severely affected by the flood.
The TGG program, whose main aim is to engage youths and mentees in various positive activities, especially related with environment, encourages such program.
