Who are we?
The Punjab Club is a vision to reimagine Punjab and showcase the real essence of Punjab.
The Punjab Club was formed to address these issues - by a group of 9 individuals, which quickly grew to 300+ volunteers with teams in all the districts of Punjab and even abroad.

What have we already done?
  • Collaborated with Government of Himachal Pradesh for rehabilitation of the Govt. School in Village Pukhri, Sainj Valley, Great Himalayan National Park; in terms of lighting, clearing the areas, and leveling for the school playground, ensured electricity connection to the school.
  • Worked in collaboration with officials across different districts of Punjab and suggested changes in COVA App (Covid Help App of Punjab) & ensured the implementation of solutions as well.
  • Forestation of one mountain with Pine and Deodar tree saplings in The Great Himalayan National Park.
  • Started a 10 bedded Covid facility in Dasuya (District Hoshiarpur) and provided the district administration with medical staff for vaccination and covid testing facilities.
  • Renovation of the District Library in Hoshiarpur.
  • Worked on conservation project of Olive Ridley Turtles in Velas, Ratnagiri, Maharashtra.
  • Established Oxygen Bank in six cities of Punjab.
  • Collated master data during the first wave of Covid
  • Supplied Cooked Food in Chandigarh & Mohali to Covid Infected families and conducted dry ration distribution drives in Bathinda & Malout.
  • Formulated cleanliness and awareness policies in/for The Great Himalayan National Park.
Why is Afforestation needed?
Currently, the world has an average of 422 trees for every person. However, India has only 28 trees per person.
Punjab today ranks second in terms of lowest tree cover (3.67%) amongst all the states in India.
With continuous escalation in environmental crisis, the need of saving and amending emerges by the minute, keeping in mind the continued survival for us and the coming generations.
The Punjab Club is focused to eradicate this inflammation of green belts & improve the status of depleting species/local fauna by executing Miyawaki and other resourceful Forestation Techniques to succeed in our mission.

How will your contribution help?
  • The project is being executed in the vicinity of approx. 150 years old Civil Rest House, Kapurthala, Punjab in an open area of 52,565  sq.ft. 
  • Planting 7000-7500 saplings of more than 30 variants/species of flowers, fruits and wild trees over the next 2-3 weeks. The focus will be on indigenous species, ensuring appropriate flora fauna density. Arjan, Simbal, Kikar, Shisham, Jamun, Sukhchain, Beri, Toot, Jand, Kadhi patta, Falsa, Kachnaar, Bohr (banyan tree) are just to name a few of the species which will be planted.
  • To maintain the site for atleast 8 months to ensure maximum success rates of the planted saplings.
  • The project will help enhance livelihoods for at least three local families.
  • To create an eco-education park for local schools and institutions.
We stand committed to do more than just planting trees. Our experts will continue to regularly monitor the growth of this plantation and ensure it remains healthy.

Every bit makes a difference, so any amount of donation will be appreciated. For as little as 55 INR ($0.75), you could help us in planting and maintaining a sapling.
