Eco-friendly NGOs typically focus on environmental conservation, sustainable practices, and community engagement. They may promote waste reduction, and advocate for renewable energy. Volunteering with Thanal provide hands-on experience in eco-friendly projects, fostering a sense of environmental responsibility.

    Empowering Communities with Clean Water

    Launched in January 2022, our Community Drinking Water Project in Manakkayam hamlet, Ranni, Pathanamthitta, has brought clean drinking water to 27 tribal families. Thanks to the generous support of Mahindra Logistics Ltd's CSR initiative 'Sankalp,' we've been able to make a life-changing difference for this water-deprived community.Previously, these families had to walk 2 kilometers to access clean drinking water, and during summer, they faced severe water scarcity in the area. This drinking water project has put an end to years of water crisis, providing a reliable and sustainable source of clean water for the community.

    Rainwater Harvester: Bridging Gaps, Transforming Lives

    For over a year, students from the Govt LPS school, Madamon North, Ranni, faced a severe water crisis. The 50 tribal children and staff of this school, where our tribal beneficiaries’ kids are studying, were suffering due to an acute water crisis as the old harvester got damaged, and they had no other means of water supply on the premises. Everyday was a challenge as buying water in large quantities was not a long-term feasible solution. Thanks to the support of UST, we stepped in to make a significant difference. With the installation of a new rainwater harvester boasting a capacity of 20,000 litres, we've brought relief and a brighter future to these students.
