SankalpTaru Operational Models

At the time when the dawn of each new day brings with it melting ice caps, increasing gaps in ozone hole and global warming, we at SankalpTaru are instrumental in planting and nurturing trees to bring life and hope to the planet. We don’t just plant but through our various operational models we create a wide socio-environmental impact and add greenery where it matters a lot. Till date we have added green zones in cold desert of Leh Ladakh, hot desert of Thar, Rajasthan, landslide affected areas of Uttarakhand Himalayas, drought challenged villages of Maharashtra & Andhra Pradesh and tribal villages of Tamil Nadu & West Bengal. We are also operational in cities of Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune and Ahmedabad. Therefore there is a bit of SankalpTaru in the air across India! For us, we haven't inherited the environment from our ancestors but only borrowed it from our children.
