Raising Forests

Healing the Planet

Tree-by-Tree; Shrub-by-Shrub

A Green India Initiative involving active citizen participation, to raise true-native forests, by mimicking nature!

JanAranya afforestation program, a key initiative by Green India, draws inspiration from the pioneering works of Veteran Botanist & Forest ecologist Dr. Akira Miyawaki; as well as the works of Shri Shubhendu Sharma, founder of Afforestt.

An 11-year long, engaging plantation drive along the route - and , around either banks - of the river; with a dream of creating a necklace of trees (Vrikshmaal) around mother Ganga!

...In Association with our esteemed & inspiring partner, Atulya Ganga

Whys, Whats, and Hows of Vrikshamaal


The area along the course of river Ganga, has a disastrous green-cover, at <2%, as against 16% in Ganga basin and 24%, nationally.

And, it houses the top 10 most polluted cities, globally!

Our Answer

We have started doing our bit by planting endemic and high longevity trees in a way that meaningfully engages the citizens, and raising awareness - primarily among youth - along the entire course of the River.


Mass-engagement, care-fully picked spots and guardians, and a tech-driven platform for building a rich database with geo-tagging, pictures,, contact details,; and regular monitoring, are the main pillars of our success.
