Volunteers will better understand flora, fauna and biodiversity in this forest area and how the nature plays an important role in influencing the lives of local people. Depending on the weather, volunteers would plant new trees and also nurture the already planted ones. Physical work would include soil working, composting, clearing weeds and bushes, preparing holes for future plantation. Besides tree plantation, volunteers will also develop educational material to create awareness among people on issues like global warming, climate change, Carbon emission, sustainable lifestyle etc. Environmental education and protection is the focus of the camp. Additional activities will also include learning of various developmental issues and solutions. They will also visit various humanitarian projects and interact with locals.

Interest in environment and climate change. Physical fitness, Flexibility and High level of motivation.


With this project we aim to do our bit to reverse climate change and preserve biodiversity of our surrounding through education and actions. As July-September are rainy months and an ideal time to plant trees therefore we annually organize environmental actions to bring more waste land under use by planting trees, Overtime we have assisted in planting more than 10,000 trees in last 5 years. Along with plantation we also educate local community about carbon emission and environmentally sustainable actions which we could apply.
