PROJECT BACKGROUND

ISHRAE and SankalpTaru partnered together to keep its commitment to make planet greener and support rural livelihood. More than one thousand delegates from ISHRAE used an online platform to remotely plant trees in drought prone Talupula village of Andhra Pradesh. With support from ISHRAE a horticulture based farming project was initiated in this adopted village with an aim to improve the livelihoods of the poor.

ISHRAE and SankalpTaru also developed a cooperative water harvesting pit along with the other farmers to ensure continued upkeep of planted trees. Workshops are also being conducted to provide knowledge of agro forestry techniques to enable them to grow cereal crop and vegetables in the same field and train them in understanding the value of growing and protecting diverse forests.
