ESD Story - The Hoolock Gibbon Eco Club, Chizami, Nagaland: Breaking free of Conventions

A three-year eco-club programme was initiated with the help of North East Network in collaboration with Dusty Foot Production, Go Wild and Titli Trust where children were taught various aspects of wildlife. Along with the children two local boys were also trained as trainers, to help continue the programme without external resource people.

The story is told through two local boys Tshetsholo Naro and Kewekhrozo Thopi who were trained as trainers. The boys, who loved hunting, went through a tough transition period when from nature hunters they decided to become expert nature conservationists. A fascinating tale of ESD in action. .
