Green Districts Initiative is essentially a people’s movement. It is with the support of volunteers, educational institutions, business houses, and many other inspired individuals that we want to plant saplings to combat desertification and increase the green cover of our country by a target and district-based missions.
We need to plant millions of trees to increase the green cover of India.

Why have we started this initiative?
High temperatures(Kurnool highest temperatures - 40 t0 45)
Flooding (Kerala floods, Chennai floods, etc.)
Uneven Rainfall( Rayalaseema received 40% less rainfall from 2017)
Glaciers and snow cover are shrinking leading to sea level rise.
Seas are warming, rising, and becoming more acidic killing marine species.
Many animals and birds are moving to new locations
Changes in the seasonal timing(rainy season shifted from June to July)
Greenhouse gas emissions(CO2, CO, CH4, SO2, NO2, Etc.) from human activities will continue to affect Earth’s climate for decades and even centuries.
Our goal is to bring the country into 33% green cover(present it is 21.54% according to satellite data).
There are 727 districts in India so if every district achieves 33% green cover, automatically India achieves 33% green cover.
Even if it is a humungous task we should start somewhere. Governments do their part but it is also our responsibility to mitigate the Climate Catastrophe that we have done through our activities.
So we want to start from Kurnool district(one of the severe drought regions of the country).
What are the most severe problems we are facing today?
1. Farmer’s Poverty
2. Nutrition in children and rural women
3. High Temperatures
4. Disturbances to bees, birds, monkeys, animals, etc.
5. Air Pollution
6. Underground Water Resources
Everything is interlinked to one another on this earth… Every living thing on this planet is getting food from only one source So We want to hit 6 targets with one bullet….
HOW DO WE HIT 6 TARGETS WITH ONE BULLET?
We will donate fruit trees to rural people to plant them in their homes or agricultural lands, after 5 years of caring…trees will start caring for them.
Which fruit trees we will plant?
2.Black plum( Neredu Pandu) trees
3.Custard Apple( Sitaphalam Pandu)
6.Guava(Jama Pandu) ETC.
These trees are chosen because they are most suitable to our soil, regional and can sustain high temperatures.
For example - coconut tree after 6 years of plantation gives at least 80 coconuts per year(1 coconut cost = 20 rs) then it gives 1600 rs per year.
Other target areas
Process of an event
After receiving funds we will conduct an event at the viable place, date and time to plant trees and seeds.
We will buy fruit saplings from nurseries and seeds from stores.
We will campaign for the event on social media(Kurnool related pages and groups) for the volunteers to participate in the event and also raise awareness to other citizens.
Donate and support us to increase the green cover of India.
Our motto is “KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT ACTION IS FUTILE ”.So please act and be your own hero.
Nothing can beat the feeling of a “RESPONSIBLE ACT”. Don’t agree? Try it once
we will send the certificate of appreciation to the donors(pdf file) if you provide the complete name( yours or your family members).
Come, let's fight together to make India "HARITHA BHARATHAM"
