The SankalpTaru Foundation provides an online platform where anyone from around the world can plant trees in regions of India that can benefit the most from the trees and their bearings. Founded in 2011, SankalpTaru has planted 27,488 trees all over India, and that number is constantly growing while they work towards their mission to establish a greener India and to improve rural livelihood. SankalpTaru has integrated social media onto their platform in order to build an online green network where you can link your tree to your Facebook and share your contributions with all of your friends.


SankalpTaru has also made the SankalpTaru Forest searchable, so you can find friends or even celebrities who have planted trees! You can even in real time nurture and watch your tree grow with GPS technology features in the forest. Apurva Bhandari, founder of SankalpTaru explains, “All of the contributions from planting trees goes to support the rural communities that are in need of help, and trees are planted where they make the most difference for the local communities and thereby increase the quality of livelihood in rural India.” Plant trees where they area needed the most, and visit www.sankalptaru.org for more information about getting your own tree in the SankalpTaru Forest.
