Meet the herd/ sponsor an elephant

Elephant Sponsorship - to ensure elephants have necessary food & care. Allowing the elephants to remain home, chain free in the forest with their herd. Keeping them out of the terrible, suffering life of the logging and/or tourist industry.

Population(s) Served
Activists
People of Asian descent

A Mahout is the most important person in the life of an elephant, that is living in any form of captivity in Asia. They are the ones who tend to all the needs of the elephants and are who know them the best. From being able to tell when the elephant is not comfortable, is tired, or hungry; to when they are not feeling well. All of this makes the mahout's job extremely important. Sadly, for a very long time, their hard work has gone unrecognized. The mahouts are made to work long hours with very little pay. They are also forced to leave their homes and families behind. This is why, at Gentle Giants, we are committed to pay the mahouts who work in our program(S) fair wages. We want them to be able to, not only support their families, but not have to leave them and their village homes behind.

Population(s) Served
People of Asian descent
Caregivers

By purchasing fresh fruit and vegetable from local farmers, we are not only providing the elephants with healthy supplemented food/nutrients, but supporting the community.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
People of Asian descent

An additional way to help support those gentle giants already under our care, while allowing us to bring more needy ones into our Project. This also gives small businesses and corporation, from around the world, a opportunity to not only give back, receive a tax deduction, but advertise on our website.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Many of the villages were not prepared for their elephants to return home. They have no shelters built for them. Many shelters were destroyed during the wet season and fires. All elephants, particularly the mothers and young babies need a place to protect them during the night and from the elements throughout the day.

Strong enclosures for the young bull elephants need to be constructed to ensure that they can continue to live chain free and not be subjected to phajaan (or the 'crush).

Population(s) Served
Adults

We want to be able to give everyone an opportunity to join this incredible journey. We understand that covid19 effected human and non-human alike. You can do a one time $2 donation or set it up to be a monthly donation.

Under the ally program, a organization, corporation, group or individual donates $10K+ and offers continual support. They are featured on our websites Home page.
