WORKING TOWARDS A BETTER FUTURE
JOIN THE EARTH BRIGADE
EARTH BRIGADE FOUNDATION (EBF) is an NGO established in 2017 by two dental surgeons, Dr. Sarita Subramaniam (BDS) and Dr. P.V.Subramaniam (MDS, Periodontist). They have been practicing in Mumbai, India, for more than 25 years.
On account of their passion for wildlife, they have traversed the length and breadth of the country over the last two decades. This has given them many opportunities to understand the challenges facing wildlife, marginalized communities around forests, underprivileged women, as well as stray animals. Over the last two decades, they have contributed at a personal level to address some of these issues. However, they realized that efforts on a much larger scale are needed to make a serious difference, which led to the formation of their not-for-profit Earth Brigade Foundation.
Earth Brigade Foundation is headquartered in Mumbai, but handles projects across several states in India. All our activities are conceptualized, designed & implemented by the two Directors, assisted by associates and volunteers. Funds are raised by means of donations from individuals & corporates, as all our initiatives qualify for receiving CSR funding. A unique feature of Earth Brigade Foundation is that these precious funds are deployed almost entirely towards the actual project work – we work with negligible overheads!
Most of our associates and volunteers render their services pro bono, as they are passionately associated with our causes. All donations to Earth Brigade Foundation are eligible for tax deduction u/s 80G of the Income Tax Act.
What We Do
We seek to bring direct benefits to the wildlife of India through the provision of drinking water and attempting to bring in stricter laws for the protection of wild animals.
STREET ANIMAL WELFARE
Earth Brigade Foundation strives to take care of the welfare of India’s street animals, from providing food to medical attention and supporting rescue organisations.
We aim to bring menstrual health education to women in rural India and forest-dwelling communities, along with helping them with other essential requirements.
With Your Help, We are Making The World a Better Place
THE GREEN BRIGADE
THE PINK BRIGADE
THE PINK BRIGADE
The Pink Brigade works for the benefit of underprivileged women in India, especially those living in remote areas, or in shelters/ rescue homes/ hospices, etc. One of the specific needs of such women which the Pink Brigade addresses is the subject of menstrual hygiene, by providing the women with sanitary napkins, and educating them on their use. More than one thousand women have been provided with their six-monthly supply till date, and many more are being identified for forthcoming programmes.
THE STREET BRIGADE
The third objective (Street Brigade) focuses on the welfare of street animals, with particular attention to their medical treatment, and their sterilisation and vaccination. Earth Brigade Foundation arranges for this care, as well as supports animal welfare organisations and field workers to enable this cause.
