It's been a while since the last update from Slow Motion Projects, and a lot of things happened in the meantime! We have finalised our project plans with Bayasgalant in Mongolia, Yunnan EcoNetwork in China, and AshaNet in India. We are also happy and excited to have built a new collaboration with an amazing Indian NGO working towards conservation and outreach in the Western Himalaya: Nature Science Initiative.
All projects are now detailed on the corresponding country pages, be sure to have a look!
Now that our plans are clearer, we are busy raising awareness about our action, and collecting funds for the projects.
As always, one franc we receive is one franc that goes to the projects — we cover the operational costs of the association and our own expenses!
Among many others, we were thrilled to receive a very generous donation from Fabulous Friends, a Zurich-based organisation run by Manuel Nappo whose vision is to offer every child a better life and a sustainable future. Have a look at their webpage. Thanks, Fabulous Friends! You are fabulous indeed.
The coming few weeks will see us travel here and there to tell people about Slow Motion Projects. We participated in the Basel StartupCamp two weeks ago, and just came back today from the Impact HUB in Zurich, where people came away very enthusiastic about the idea! Or maybe it was the cookies baked by Lisa?
Stay tuned for more news in the coming few weeks, as the date of our departure approaches! We'll be hitting the road in the first few days of April... In slow motion!
