Improving lives & saving elephants - The SGS Interview with Sahil Choksi of Wildlife Trust India
Our last interview at the 2017 Asian Venture Philanthopy Network conference was with Sahil Choksi, the Deputy Director and Head of Development for Wildlife Trust of India (WTI). Sahil heads up a program that buys land for people who are living in the migratory lands of elephants, which provides safety for both the people and the elephants, while also improving the livelihoods of the same people. We’ll let Sahil tell you the rest of the story (and how you can help). If you’re interested in learning more about their efforts, you can check out the WTI page on the AVPN Deal Share site. https://avpn.asia/deals/elephant-corridors/

Improving lives through contract farming - The SGS Interview with Mélanie Perissé of Project Alba
The Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN), an organization that helps Social Purpose Organizations (SPOs) match up with impact funders, held their 2017 conference in Bangkok. I helped out a bit and was able to record a few interviews among all the hubbub. My first of those was with Mélanie Perissé from Project Alba, a Social Purpose Organization (SPO) that works to improve the lives of farmers in Cambodia via contract farming arrangements. In the interview, Mélanie explains the model employed by Project Alba, and how it benefits the farmers they work with, as well as the fundraising effort she’s currently working on. Please have a listen, and if you’d like to learn more, here’s a link to the Project Alba site. http://www.project-alba.com/
