I Own a Tree
'This is a unique program by Eco Club to connect people by building and bonding relationship with Trees.
Individuals, who enroll in this program to sponsor and own a tree, are issued a special sticker which says “I OWN A TREE”. The sticker can be proudly displayed on the vehicles, homes, offices etc.
Individuals are provided with complete information about the type of the tree planted in his/her name and all necessary education required for caring and nurturing the tree they own. Apart from this, the details of the individuals with the type of the tree they own and the place it is planted is maintained in the foundation’s own web site.
The organization maintains the tree for 2 years, from the date of plantation. All financial aspects are transparent and details are made available to all members on www.iownatree.org for verification at any point of time.
This project conveys concepts of environmental protection and regular practices that could be adopted in daily life to reduce degradation of resources.
This program is aimed at children in the class 4 to class 7 tier. This age group has been chosen as it is known to leave profound impact on the young minds and that they will carry it way throughout their lives and also teach others.
The project is being led by Kshiti members with help from some volunteers.
