Climate change is one of the biggest threats the world is facing today, and considering the startling forecasts about its impact, simultaneous education and action at the grassroots level becomes a vital imperative. One of the most practical ways to do so is to plant more trees. When a tree breathes, it inhales carbon dioxide and exhales oxygen. This natural process helps to clean the air. As a tree matures, it consumes up to 22 kgs of carbon dioxide per year and stores it in the wood and soil, thus removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

In July 2018, Humana People to People India, in partnership with Havells India Ltd., rolled out the Green Action Project with an aim to plant one-lakh trees by 2019 in the three gram panchayats of Neemrana block, namely, Bhitera, Dosod, and Kanhawas, in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. The main objective of the project is to develop a ‘green area’ in the selected region and raise awareness on environment conservation through plantation and conservation of trees.

As a part of the project, meetings are held with the Gram Panchayats of different blocks to ensure their cooperation to maintain the trees. Timely cleaning actions are conducted with community members, students, and project staff to ensure the plantation areas remain clean. So far, the project has been successful in planting 47,581 trees in its first quarter (July-September) which saw participation from members of youth and farmer clubs, students, teachers, CISF trainees, and HPPI team and staff who worked together to dig the pits and plant the saplings. Youth from Humana People to People India TCGD (Training Centre for Global Development) also volunteered in the tree plantation action and helped to plant over 15,000 trees in the project locations.

The next major planting of trees will take place in the monsoon season to ensure high rates of survival. The main aim for the project in the coming months is to ensure the survival of the planted saplings.

Besides adding an impetus towards increasing the green cover in the area, the project has also managed to generate employment in the villages where it is being implemented. The project team provided income generation opportunities to 24 women and men in the villages by hiring them for their engagement in the tree plantation activities for around three months. The labour belonging to poor families earn INR 350 for a day’s work and help the project in loading and offloading saplings that have been delivered from the nurseries. The project team provided them with training on the techniques of planting and maintaining the trees, and will continue to offer them with opportunities in the future as the project would demand for planting, monitoring and cleaning actions.
