A massive forestation drive is on in Uttarakhand’s Watan village to create a source of income-generation for the villagers of this hill state. Team Goonj is working closely with the people of this region to plant saplings, herbs, shrubs etc to convert it into a proper forest, using the Miyawaki technique that helps build dense, native forests. The approach ensures 10 times faster plant growth, resulting in 30 times denser plantation. A similar activity is soon to start in other villages in this region. This green drive was taken up under our ‘Dignity for Work’ (earlier called CFW) initiative, which is all about involving people as equal stakeholders in their wellbeing.
