Site visits are a vital component of our tree planting initiatives. These trips provide us with a firsthand insight into our projects’ impact. Join us as we delve deeper into the recent expedition of our team member, Catherine, to the heart of our Tamil Nadu projects.
We currently have three major projects in Tamil Nadu, namely, Trees for Tribals, Trees for Coastal Ecosystems and Trees for Sacred Grove. Each of the three projects have been carefully designed to cater to the unique requirements of its respective areas and communities.

A significant aspect of the site visits involve heartwarming conversations with our plantation workers. One of our plantation workers, Mageshwari, shared her thoughts on how our projects have made an impact in her life, “Through the plantation work, my life has completely changed. I find satisfaction in doing this work and it has also given me a stable source of income.”
