WHO WE ARE - NGO IN UDAIPUR
With the support of kids living near his house, Bhuvnesh Ojha sowed the seeds of Pukaar Foundation on March 10, 2013, now a leading NGO in Udaipur. What started off as a seemingly self-funded tree plantation drive for the initial eight months has now grown into a vast youth run organization spreading awareness about tree plantation all over the country. The tree plantation projects taken up by Pukaar send out a strong message to everyone in order to help secure a better future for the generations to come. We are an NGO working for tree plantation who strive to make each effort a step closer to nature.
Starting November 10, 2013, Pukaar started their weekly tree planting activity every Sunday. Pukaar organizes plantation in Udaipur and Banswara which is why we are one of a kid NGO in Rajasthan.
Our Mission and Vision
‘Pukaar Foundation’ is an NGO in Udaipur, Rajasthan dedicated to creating a sustainable environment for the present as well as future generations. We believe in making the world a better place to live in with continuous tree plantation and maintenance activities. Unlike other environmental NGOs, Pukaar aims to spread awareness through the conservation and plantation of ancestral varieties of trees to ensure better diversity and protecting the flora and fauna. Our vision is to negate the effects of global warming and pollution on the environment and bring back what has been nearly lost.
We wish to encourage the youth of the country to move towards a greener India and pay back to Mother Earth in gratitude. Pukaar is an NGO in Udaipur whose chief focus has always been on giving back to nature in one way or the other. It is an NGO working for tree plantation paving the way for tomorrow where the grass is not just greener on the other side, but everywhere we look at.
Why tree plantation is the best social service
It will be no surprise to call trees a mother to our planet, as they take in harmful carbon dioxide to give out oxygen that helps us breathe. Trees not only filter out harmful polluted air but also provide shelter to animals and other living beings. From paper to furniture, every other item in our house consists of wood in some form or the other. Our society teaches us to give back, so we should, to nature also. We, in India, believe in ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ or ‘the world is one family’, it is time we treated our voiceless brothers as family too.
Tree plantation tackles, in the most aggressive way, the two main causes of environmental degradation – global warming and deforestation. Pukaar is an NGO in Rajasthan, a state that has been grappling with water woes for a very long time. This, along with many other environmental problems can only be solved with these tree plantation NGOs. All it takes is two helping hands and a passion to devote just a few minutes of your day to the nature. Let’s join hands to save the future before it’s too late!
WHY WE NEED TO PLANT MORE TREES
Planting trees has become the need of the hour especially if we were to go by these facts and figures:
- It is estimated that within the next 100 years there will be no rainforests left.
- We lose around 7.3 million hectares of forest land each year, according to the UNFAO.
- Agriculture and construction has become the leading cause of deforestation all over the world.
- Every passing minute the numbers of trees being cut equal the area of 20 football fields.
- Over-population is also a leading cause of deforestation.
- Ever since humans started cutting down trees, 46% of all the trees have been brought down.
It is imperative that we realize the gravity of the situation and act upon it. Are you looking for an NGO near me? Join Pukaar and give us a helping hand towards shaping a greener future.
