Help us plant another 1000 trees

With help and leadership of my father Mr. R.D. Sohal, we have planted more than 6000 trees in our village in Una (H.P., India) in the last 5 years. We have pledged this year to plant another 1000 trees in July 2019, right in time with early monsoon season.  We got great support in 2018, and also launched an NGO called Himansh Earthcare Foundation (HEF) .  HEF is now registered and approved by local government authorities.  
Following are the key events that we intend to conduct this year:
1) An awareness event with support from local administration (panchayat) to educate local villagers on benefits of planting trees. Locals will be donated about 300 plants so that they can grow them in their own land.
2) Plant about 700 trees in public places (local cremation ground, brick-kiln compound, around playground & Law-college) with help of around 50 volunteers.
The raised funds will be spent on following:
1) Buying plants (expected to cost INR 50-INR 100 each; Which is equivalent to USD1 to USD2 each) from local forest department nursery
2) Refreshments & water for volunteers
3) Organic manure

Last year's plantation drive is captured in following video:

I will bear any shortfall of funds that might happen. Surplus of funds if any, will be invested into planting more trees later in the year.  
Your support will go a long way in raising awareness of local villagers to plant and save trees.

Hi All,

Thank you for the support. We are closing this campaign for the year.  The heavy monsoon rains this year made our job difficult.  But we were able to exceed our goal of planting 1000 trees with help from donors like you and many volunteers who joined us.  Here is an update on how the funds raised have been utilised so far.

- Plants & Trees - Rs. 20000
- Manure, Tools and labor - Rs 4000
- Refreshments - Rs. 1000

We look forward to taking it to next level next year.  We will appreciate your ideas and suggestions.  If you or your communities would like to plant trees feel free to reach out to us and we will be happy to share our experience.

regards, Himaansh Earthcare Foundation team members
