As a non-profit public interest organisation, ESG recognises the need to extend its campaign and research support towards many issues across the country and several local communities. This can be achieved only through greater support and cooperation from individuals and organisations that believe in building a better environment and society.
Donations can be made in general to ESG's various functions or even specifically to the following:
- Research, Documentation and Publication - Building a well-resourced library for research and advocacy initiatives and documentation of media reports on a variety of issues. ESG's research and documentation on a wide variety of environmental and social Justice issues, articles and other extensive reports on a wide range of issues remain unpublished. Such information, if published would provide an excellent and comprehensive source of information on a range of issues.
- Campaigns - ESG staff has largely supported its campaigns from their own earnings from project funded research. Supporting ongoing campaign initiatives liberally would enable ESG to raise many fundamental issues affecting our society.
- Training - ESG has successfully conducted several workshops on environmental and social justice perspectives involving students, teachers, public administrators and a wide variety of communities based on an experiential learning methodology. Whilst the demand for such workshops has been growing, the resources to support such initiatives are not forthcoming easily. Your contribution would enable us to systematically organise training programmes on a variety of environmental and social justice issues.
- Infrastructure - Equipping the organisation with necessary resources for such training, campaign and research activities with technical and audio visual aids, computers and software, and office supplies.
- Corpus - Providing liberal contributions to ESG's corpus fund will go a long way in sustaining the many activities and initiatives of the organisation.
