BIO DIVERSITY PROJECT - AHMEDNAGAR, MAHARASHTRA
In collaboration with Sankalptaru, FOReT has planted trees in Ahmednagar, a largest district of Maharashtra state in India. The region mostly remains hot and dry, thus receiving erratic rainfall. This fluctuating nature of rainfall in Ahmednagar affects the moisture content in the soil because of which it has become an extremely drought prone area, leading to adverse water scarcity.
With Sankalp Taru, FOReT contributes towards planting fruit-bearing trees such as custard apple on the lands of various rural farmers to support their livelihood. This initiative would not only go a long way in rejuvenating environment and attracting more and more rain through the increased green cover, but will also strengthen the living of poor villagers by providing them with a more reliable and permanent source of income.
