With help and leadership of my father Mr. R.D. Sohal, we have planted more than 4000 trees in our village in Una (H.P., India) in the last 4 years. We have pledged this year to plant another 1000 trees in early July 2018, right in time with early monsoon season. Following are the key events that we intend to conduct:
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, pond, around playground etc.) 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
4) Paying a local villager about $40 per month for 6 months to water the plants on a regular basis
I will bear any shortfall of funds that might happen. Any surplus of funds if any, will be invested into planting more trees later in the year.  
I thank my company (Medtronic Inc) for donating 60 t-shirts for volunteers.  Your support will go a long way in raising awareness of local villagers to plant and save trees.
