Heart of Ganesh educates and empowers people to take Compassionate Action for captive and endangered elephants, while sharing the power of positive change that occurs when you Let What Moves You Move the World.
We connect and collaborate with individuals and other non-profits who are committed to positive change through Compassionate Action. We believe every one of us (from an impoverished rice farmer in Sri Lanka to a young child in Cambodia to you, yourself) has a passageway to rise up and take action, advocating for the elephants who are in dire need of immediate intervention while helping the rural, often impoverished families who live where elephants live.
From the USA throughout SE Asia, we connect across cultures through grassroots projects and campaigns that get people thinking about, and then taking action, for a kinder world for elephants and people alike.
Connecting and Collaborating across the Globe
Our hearts are set on co-creating a world where Compassionate Action and Collaboration lead the way.
We work hands-on in the field, forest, jungles and villages of SE Asia much of the year, implementing a variety of campaigns and projects while working and living where the lives of elephants and people are closely intertwined.
In November we’ll be back in Cambodia, first in collaboration with the Elephant Valley Project. After supplying Back to School bags to almost 100 children, the children, EVP, and HG will build and paint a proper library and art center in their school.
In continued collaboration with EVP, we’ll supply the equipment necessary for a new snare-removal project, “Forest Sweep”, helping the animals of this forest in transition remain safe from human predators, and documenting the process to build the necessary support to actually save them in the end.
In March we’ll be back in Sri Lanka, first looking in on our HOT families to see how their Honey Bees and Orange Trees are doing. We hope to see small oranges on most of the 500 trees planted last year, and comb in a most of the hives, and smiles on the faces of the farmers…
Then we’ll return to “our” village school, continuing where we left off last February, with 10 of the finest young students attending school in one room in the middle of Human Elephant Conflict land. This is is big project, with hopes of installing electricity this year, increasing the children’s nutrition, and helping their teacher receiver the additional training and support needed to continue on in a far-flung village.
We’ll be expanding our mixed media project begun last year in Thailand, “108 Shorts”, a multi-cultural story-telling project comprised of 108 Short Stories each 108-seconds long, all told by the children of Cambodia, Thailand, and Sri Lanka. We hope you’ll share their journey with us!
