Homestead gardening is an alternative financial solution for women in the river islands. It also brings some extra profit to the household along with food security. Friendship provides small training sessions for these women to grow their garden and take care of it better. #transforminglives #homegardens #supportfarmers #friendsandheroes #friendshipngo ...

The flood has just washed away the harvest for this season. Now farmers need to prepare for the next season. To learn better techniques to ensure a better harvest, they are given multiple technical training sessions in liaison with local government. #transforminglives #localfarming #harvesttime #friendsandheroes #friendshipngo ...

In the remote river-islands, char-dwellers often face immense hassle in trying to find justice and legal support due to lack of knowledge. Friendship Community Paralegals guide them to comprehensively understand their rights and to easily avail legal services. #TransformingLives #legalservices #victimsupport #friendsandheores #friendshipngo ...

Due to lack of awareness, financial capabilities and proper guidance, marginalised char dwellers fail to avail proper legal services. Friendship has been acting as a bridge between them and district legal aid, and today, we are inaugurating ‘Online Legal Information and Help Desk’ to make it more accessible and easier for them to avail the services at free of cost.

“We know the causes of the biodiversity loss: societal and business practices. To change that, we have to speak their language, understand them so that we can transform these practices,” said Dr Bruno Oberle, Director General of IUCN during the #IUCNCongress.

As much as it is true for the loss, it is also true for the protection of biodiversity. People who live close to nature, nurturing it - to adapt to their #NatureBasedSolutions, we need to get close to them, their #ClimateAdaption solutions.
