Thanks for the AMA, and for what you do! With the nature and scope of your work, I dunno if you have time to keep up with international news - but it was announced on Monday that India has recorded its highest ever rise in tiger population - 33% in 4 years, and numbers are up from 1,411 in 2006, 1,706 in 2010, and 2,226 in 2014, to 2,967 in 2018.

What advice would you give people doing similar work in India, and is there anything from their experiences which could benefit your cause?

Thanks the reply, and for what you do! Tough question, this, for all 3 are important and difficult to work at in their own ways. But choosing a catagory without specifics, I'd go with working for children. Because I think it needs more efforts and resources since it kinda lays a foundation for the future, and it may be trickier to work with them. I got to know about an organisation who connect with kids through sports, and I loved that idea! This is something we do as a part of our work, and I completely agree with their philosophy. I know they work with inner city children in Chicago, and kids from Iraq/Afghanistan/Palestine/Syria. (Don't remember this place.)

I have another question for you. Please don't get me wrong, but there are some organisations which generate sympathy, take advantage of people's emotions, and make money off of it. Like in my city, there are numerous orphanages, centres for AIDS patients, senior citizens' homes, schools for the visually impared, tribals, special needs children, etc. and most of them are pretty well-off, financially. And at the same time, there are small organisations renowned in their respective fields, whose people keep it afloat with money out of their own pockets, and are working for causes having little to no public attention. Does this factor weigh in in your process? (Not from the US btw.)

The charities you choose - is there any criterion for it, geographical location or otherwise?
