Chintamani, located in Chikballapur district is a semi-arid area which experiences erratic rainfall during the monsoon. Most of the villages do not have sufficient green cover and availability of water resources is scarce.

Current Scenario: 

  • The district lacks green cover
  • Villages suffer from acute shortage of water 
  • Water table in this region is very low
  • Less water in the sole pond located in the identified village for plantation drive 
To begin with 5000 saplings will be planted in one village covering 25 acres. By planting trees in large numbers, Say Trees and United Way Bengaluru wants to restore the green cover which, in long run, will help in water conservation, restore biodiversity and increase the water table in the village.
