A Green Depot Employee Thinks Globally, & Acts Globally

November 4th, 2011 | Posted by sschultz in Environment

DFN began in 2002 in response to the plea of Dalit leaders: "Educate our children!"

Green Depot would like to acknowledge our employee Isaac McPhee for his efforts to contribute to the global community. This month he will be taking two weeks off of work and going to Sholinger, India as a volunteer with the Dalit Freedom Network (DFN.)

The DFN is an organization that works with India’s most disadvantaged people, the Dalit (also knows as “untouchables.”) The organization helps start schools and medical clinics in the community and also has a micro-finance program. They have already succeeded in starting 100 schools for children. They also offer adult education and training in areas like mechanical repair and computers. This will be Isaac’s fourth time to India with the DFN, and this time he is going as a faciliator and point person for a group of volunteer doctors and teachers.

As citizens of the world, we applaud Isaac’s effort. It is truly global thinking like this that will lift all of us into a sustainable future. Thank you Isaac!
