Project Tara is a Covid-relief project for the women-owned local businesses of the mountains.
Through Project Tara we aim to support the women entrepreneurs by providing them digital platforms to take their products from local to global marketplace.
At Giri, we believe that these women share the same calm and fierceness as that of the Snow Leopard-our Mascot Tara and the pandemic should not hinder their journey of growth. We wish to support their endeavours with a zero-profit goal for Giri Foundation. We hope Project Tara is a big leap in their economic recovery and success.

Bewildered by the lustrous allure of the scenic environment,
Like a caressed whisper, drowned in the wind within the charismatic arc of Mother Nature,
Encircled by the beautiful lush green meadows,
Hypnotising the existence of humanity within,
Overlooking the clear water loges, a homeland to various marine creatures,
Bounded by tall, soaring trees, a dwelling for variant forest animals,
Shadowed by enriching colossal mountains,
Preserving the vital entity of various living creatures,
Gauged in the magnificence of the umbrella species,
Flamed in the agonising power binding of the snow leopard,
Preserving the conservation of other species,
Plastering a moral story for the humanitarian society,
In saving and protecting our natural sanctuary.

J the Giri foundation and together let’s build a safe ground for our Mother Nature and break all barriers and safeguard our environment!

Nari Shakti SHG was established in 2017, by Ms Reena Lodhi a resident of Jawalapur, Haridwar Uttarakhand. Initially, the establishment consisted of 10 members. The women of this foundation, generate their income by peddling handcrafted products and garbage compost, in various exhibitions and fairs or sometimes they directly connect with the consumer within the state. But during the midst of the Pandemic, these women groups are working diligently to provide security and safety to the citizens of the country. Every morning, women visit the nearby localities and collect garbage, compost them into fertilisers, then trade them in their home markets. For almost 1.5 years this organisation is focused on making masks and safety jackets. Then these products are being sold in ITC Haridwar, CMO office, Municipal Corporation, Local Shops, and SBMA Sanstha.

A short excerpt from our interview with Shivani, Co-founder of Peepal Farm, who aims to employ and empower at least 100 women.

“I too want to teach girls new skills, and to give them new skill set. Like if I teach them how to make...[something]...,they learn a new skill. They don’t have to work with me forever. When they go back home, or get married, they will always have that skill.....so this way, not only will they learn a new skill for life and be empowered, they will be able to empower their entire family.”

What started with a piece of land and a vision to help animals, gave birth to @peepalfarm. It is a sanctuary for animals, with the objective of healing and rescuing them.
To help spread the message of an ethical and cruelty-free lifestyle, and to reach an even larger audience, @peepalfarm branched out to @peepalfarmproducts , their own brand of organic and vegan products, that are made by rural women from the village. These range from vegan products, to upcycled accessories like dog toys, earrings etcetera.
Giri feels privileged to collaborate with @peepalfarmproducts and share similar views as the Co-founder of Peepal Farm, Shivani, whose mission in life is to employ at least 100 local women in her lifetime.
Stay tuned to read more about Peepal Farm, and the amazing interview we had with their co-founder.

Enthralled in the mystical ambiance of the alluring shades of nature,
Illustrated in the arc of the environment,
Through the soulful green pigmentation of the trees,
The angelic innocence of the white clouds,
A flow of purity and authenticity in the midnight blue sky,
The magnificent enchanting aura of the pink rhododendron,
Just like the beautiful and mesmerizing spirit of our hardworking, diligent mountain women,
The arc of nature beautifully bends and molds the vibrant variety of glow of tones in a woman’s soul,
So this Holi, Giri embarks to personify and intensify the lives of these women with the colours of profound happiness and prosperity like a prism of rainbow..!
Wishing you and your family a very Happy Holi.

“She was like a phoenix rising from its ashes. She tumbled upon the darkest, deepest paths of her journey, but she didn’t give up. Instead, she grew from them. The previous chapters of her book were not her weakness anymore. Instead, they were her strength to keep her stronger and which gave her immortal power to be sane.”

“ When I was a little girl, I used to dream as a man, because I wanted to do things that women didn’t do back then such as traveling to Africa, living with wild animals and writing books. I didn’t have any female explorers or scientists to look up to but I was inspired by Dr. Dolittle, Tarzan and Mowgli in The Jungle Book — all male characters. It was only my mother who supported my dream: “You’ll have to work hard, take advantage of opportunities and never give up,” she’d tell me. I’ve shared that message with young people around the world, and so many have thanked me, and said, “You taught me that because you did it, I can do it too.” I wish mum was around to hear the way her message to me has touched so many lives.

I remember a very funny time in my life just before I got to Africa. My paternal uncle was Sir Michael Spens, son of Lord Patrick Spens. Michael was keen to present me at court as a debutante — in those days society girls had a season of dances and balls — a kind of marriage market. Obviously to me, this was completely absurd but I had to humor Michael, and so I lined up in Buckingham Palace to shake hands with the Queen. I remember being surrounded by girls who said to me, “Don’t you dream of being a lady-in-waiting?” I replied, “Absolutely not – I want to live among wild animals.” They recoiled in horror. They thought I was very weird, but then I thought they were very weird, too.”
