WHY SHERE KHAN ?
Because 'Shere Khan' means the chief/king among all tigers in Hindi (one of the national languages in India) also used in the famous children’s story 'The Jungle book' (1967).
For us, the tiger represents a symbol not only of strength and courage but also of protective instincts for the fragile, the weak.
And that’s what we want to bring to the Indian youth. By helping them we protect them from life’s dangerous pathways.
The tiger is also one of Noëlle Demole's favorite earth giants !
Unfortunately and sadly this majestic animal is currently an endangered and trafficked species...(used for captive breeding for tourism purposes and killed for its skin, flesh, claws, tooth and bones for trophy hunting purposes, folk remedies, traditional Asian medicines, status symbols and full fur pets that are extremely valuable in the illegal black market).
The state of Tamil Nadu is located here
