As I was browsing through the YouTube videos, I came across the Uncultured Project. This is an amazing idea brought forth by a very amazing person.
The Uncultured Project is a funny name given to a simple idea.
It’s not a charity.
It’s not a NGO.
It’s not an attempt at becoming a YouTube celebrity.
It’s just a project by someone who believes that if you want the world to be a better place – you have to do your part.
I got the idea while I was a grad student at Notre Dame. While there, I got to meet Dr. Jeffrey Sachs (author of the book “The End of Poverty”). Shortly after meeting him, I voluntarily withdrew from graduate school (in good standing), bought a camera, grabbed my computer, and flew to Bangladesh to see if I could make a difference.
I call it “The Uncultured Project” because there is no set plan, no formal training, and no goal other than wanting to make as much of a difference as possible. - Shawn, 27
I encourage everyone to checkout the Uncultured Project blog and the Uncultured Project videos, such as the one below, which is the first of a series. Also if you have found any great websites, videos, or photos – please share them with us!
Tea growers in Bangladesh are implementing some of the most innovative and socially responsible practices in the world. Cultivating the world’s best tea-growing land – adjacent to the Himalayan tea belt – a country heretofore unknown for its premium teas is fast becoming a thought leader on best practices for protecting the land and the people who work it. In this seminar you will enjoy some of the most exquisite teas while traveling to an exciting and fascinating part of the world.
Tetulia is delighted to announce that we will be launching our full range of teas at the 2008 World Tea Expo in Las Vegas. This year’s World Tea Expo will take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and Tetulia will be found at booth #723. We’ll also be presenting Teas from Bangladesh: The Next Generation at the Focused Tasting on Sunday, June 1 from 8:30-9:30am.
If you’ll be attending The Expo, we invite you to stop by our booth to enjoy our exquisite teas. We would love to tell you more about our garden in the Tetulia region of Bangladesh, where we have implemented totally natural and organic farming practices and worked hard to improve conditions for the people of the region while producing our exceptional teas.
Be the first to taste this truly revolutionary tea and learn about our unique approach to tea growing in general.
