My Message

Dear Family and Friends, I am now in Guyana through a placement with Cuso International to work with Conservation International providing support to the Ministry of Education as a Natural Resource and Environmental Education Advisor. For me, this (ad)venture is both personal and professional. This is an opportunity to not only explore the diverse human, physical, and bio-geography of the world, which fascinates me, but also to pursue my personal and professional interests in conservation, international development, sustainability and a desire to affect change. I believe that strong local organizations and their ability to identify, manage, and resolve environmental and social development issues is an important step towards self-reliance, community progress, and long-term sustainability of programs and projects.Guyana has a wealth of natural resources. 80% of Guyana is still forested with one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world. I hope my work in evaluating environmental education and awareness initiatives, designing of curriculums and training, will help raise awareness of biodiversity and climate change and encourage sustainable use of Guyana’s natural resources. Cuso International is a non-profit organization that sends professionals to developing countries rather than money to support international development work. Professionals work alongside with collaborating partners to enable knowledge sharing and transfer of skills. I believe this approach is an important means to ensure long-term sustainability and self reliance. I ask you today to support me and my fundraising efforts by donating generously to Cuso. For every one dollar donated, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) will contribute $9! So please donate generously. Thank you for your support. Suresh VK
