One of the main reason for depleting water table is less tree cover in the region. Its highly important to increase the tree cover of this region to improve water tables and micro climate. These will have long lasting positive effects on the livelihoods of the low income groups by recharging of bore-wells naturally, that help them in small scale vegetation.
Saplings will be planted with farmers and in schools campuses with school students. A mini forest inside the school compound improves the behaviour of the school children by giving the children a greener environment that also has an impact on improved attendance and responsibility.
The proposal is to start plantation of 2500 saplings. 2000 saplings will be planted in Pudukkottai and 500 saplings will be planted in Sivakasi.
Pics of plantation will be shared with the donors. Donors can also become part of the plantation drives and plant saplings with farmers. Full transparency will be ensures.
