Mr. Yusuf Tiwari, President
As a former Municipal Counsellor representing Ramsheela ward, I had the opportunity to work closely with the Nagar Palika Parishad, Almora and develop a network of support in the town. I am an active member of the Vyapar Mandal and am keen on working with my fellow shop-keepers to keep the market clean. I am closely involved with a State-wide youth movement engaged in social change.
Dr. Vasudha Pant, Secretary
I have always been sensitive towards the hill environment and its people. Being an agricultural scientist, my focus has been on sustaining agriculture in the Himalayan belt, to which I belong. For a long time, I have been associated with several local organizations working for the conservation of biodiversity and preservation of traditional knowledge systems of the region. I believe that economic development, employment generation and conservation of bio-diversity in our region require a combination of technical advice from academicians and practical inputs from villagers.
Mrs. Asha D’Souza, Treasurer
I came to live in Almora in 2011 and love the mountains. I couldn’t bear to see them disfigured by mounds of garbage. After spending half my life in Switzerland, a country where cleanliness is an obsession, I felt I had to do something to prevent waste being scattered and randomly burnt. I had already worked on a project called WasteWise in Bangalore that improved working conditions for street youth who made a living from selling recyclables. I also believe that protecting the forest cover of our region is essential to mitigate climate change.
Mr. Ajay Prasad, Principal Advisor
I’m pleased to put my long experience in business management and my vast network of contacts in both the public and private sectors at the service of Green Hills. After living in Africa and Europe for many years, my wife and I have permanently settled in Majkhali, near Ranikhet. Since March 2020, we are actively engaged in mobilising local support for solid waste management in our area in partnership with Green Hills and can already see the beneficial impact on the environment.
