We were thrilled to have members of local NGO Amrita-Seattle attend our work party on October 10th! Amrita-Seattle does great work in both Seattle and West Bengal centered around health, education, and clean water. Their motto is “Live to Serve” – and they certainly live up to that!
In West Bengal, they are helping to address the arsenic contamination problem by applying water filtration devices, while in Seattle, they have been active with the Teen Feed program and collect food donations for local food banks. More info can be found at their website.
We want to thank Amrita-Seattle for withstanding a veritable downpour to help us accomplish some important weed control on our eastern UW-REN restoration sites. Thanks Amrita! And thanks to our many volunteers, donors and sponsors for making these work parties possible.
