Coorg or Kodagu (originally called Kodaimalenadu) means “dense forest on steep hill”. It is a rural district located near the city of Mysore (Karnataka State) amongst scenery of misty hills, lush forest, acres and acres of tea, coffee and spice plantations, orange groves, undulating streets and breathtaking views.

The Camp: Due to the heavy rainfall in Coorg earlier this year, the devastation to the landscape, homes and lifestyle of the local people was tremendous. This time, FSL-India’s work camp focuses on rehabilitation of the land of the Kodavas. The activities planned along with local environmental organisations will help to avoid landslides and ensure reforestation as well as environmental protection.

In addition, our volunteers will work with different local NGOs to spread health and hygiene awareness among the tribal villages. This work camp also involves assisting various underprivileged schools by teaching Basic English and Mathematics, Health and Hygiene, physical renovation work like building playgrounds and visiting the nearby Tibetan settlement, farms and estates.

FSL-India has been running workcamps all over India since 2001. Over the years, FSL-India has developed a strong network of local partners and local volunteers in the regions where we conduct our camps. In every workcamp, FSL-India works in partnership with local NGOs – since they are able to identify the problems and needs of the locality. This helps us achieve sustainability and a larger impact in the work that we do. Partnering with a local NGO also helps in reaching out to the local community. In addition, FSL-India works in various fields in cooperation with Archaeological Survey of India, Ministry of Women and Child Welfare, Ministry of Health, Education, Forest and Wildlife Departments and Local Self-governance Bodies.

The participation fee has to be paid on arrival to our Team Leader in Indian rupees.
