Through the Sands Cares Accelerator, we help fast-track nonprofit organizations toward the next stage of their operational development. Member organizations receive financial support to aid in their capacity building, as well as mentoring and other assistance through the duration of their three-year engagements with the program. Member Green Our Planet, in year two of their membership, is making great strides in achieving their organizational goals.
Operators of the largest school garden program in the United States, Green Our Planet is dedicated to advancing STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) for students around the country. With a history of teaching students to love and care for the planet we all call home, and a track record of delivering innovative programming and learning tools to students, especially those from low-income and at-risk areas, they joined the Accelerator to help grow the reach of their already-impactful work.
They have also made great strides in launching and expanding other programs, as well. Pranav Jamponi, executive director of sustainability at The Venetian Resort, joined Green Our Planet as a board member and helped develop their HydroHealth program, which connects Green Our Planet with various corporations, and will help develop a sustainable, long-term revenue stream. They have also been able to launch a Virtual Academy which delivers STEM, nutrition and conservation films to teachers and students.
