Hello! Hope you’re doing great because we have some exciting news to share!
As our name suggests, The Crafting Table is an organization that deals in craftwork. We, therefore, are proud to present a collaboration with Stuti Srivatsava.
You might be curious about who that is. Continue reading
Narayanpura is a small, charming village off the main roads of Bangalore, famous for its talented potters and craftspeople.
Richa and I visited this quaint location today afternoon. After a couple wrong turns, we reached the house of Mr. Nandish, with whom we had an appointment. Continue reading
We’re talking about a collaboration with someone new… Not gonna go into the details but we’ll keep you posted.
Something’s coming up! Hope you’re just as excited as we are!
Hey! This is about my second volunteering session at PFA, on Sunday the 18th.
Things were a little busier when I arrived. A few staff members were absent, so they were short staffed. My day began at the ICU, where I helped change all the beddings. I also had to forage for sticks to put in the squirrels’ enclosures.
I next had to cut fruits for breakfast. This included papaya (yuck).
After the fruits were distributed to the monkeys and parrots, I headed back to the ICU. I helped prepare the formula food for the baby monkeys, barbets, and squirrels. I also watched as the birds of prey (kites and crows) were fed minced chicken. Watching monkeys try to steal the crows’ food through the cage bars was hilarious.
I’ll post an update after my next volunteering session.
Hey guys! It’s been a while. Just Manya here today.
I spent some time at PFA a few hours ago, volunteering.
Do you remember the jackal we talked about in this post? Great news – she’s been released into the wild. Since her enclosure was pretty large, they’re moving the jungle cat (also mentioned in this post) into that space.
Today’s main task was collecting large rocks for the jungle cat’s enclosure. It was hard work, but these rocks will make the space resemble the animal’s natural habitat, which is an important aspect of the rehabilitation process.
Speaking of this cat, I was surprised at the massive increase in size since I last saw it. A few months ago, it was the size of a kitten. Now it’s slightly taller than my knee. Of course, I only got a quick glimpse, because of the fact that it’s only allowed limited contact with humans.
Next, at the ICU, I was able to observe a vet bottle-feed two infant monkeys. I also watched as he fed pubescent barbets a formulation of Sammolac (a baby food formula).
My final task for the day was cutting vegetables and portioning them for the monkeys. This included potatoes, sweet potatoes, radishes, cabbages, carrots, turnips, and beetroots.
I’m returning tomorrow, and I will post another update after that session.
Hey! We’really happy to announce that The Crafting Table is now going to be entering a partnership with another business.
BookBite is another student venture founded to promote reading and the love of books. For Rs. 500 a month, you can subscribe and have a box with a special book of the month delivered to you. Visit their Facebook page here.
The idea of this partnership is a collaboration between both organizations. Every month, enclosed in the BookBite package, is going to be a little environment friendly goodie made by us. Since TCT is a non-profit, our revenue from this partnership will be donated to PFA – and as a plus, this partnership will result in another enterprise leaning humanitarian.
Hey guys! An article about The Crafting Table arrived in our city’s newspaper, and we thought you might want to check it out! You can also view it online here.
Hey! Rs. 6790 was donated in person to People for Animals, Bangalore. Thank you for your support.
The rehabilitation work they’re doing is truly phenomenal. Richa and I had the privilege of seeing an Indian jackal. Her rehabilitation is almost complete, and she’s going to be released into the wild as soon as the paperwork regarding her release is finished. Continue reading
