Our work in India primarily focuses on fruit trees and mangroves. Fruit trees will be planted in the rural Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Odisha, where food scarcity has been amplified by the effects of COVID-19. At a time when many migrant laborers are returning home, planting trees in the homesteads, communities, and villages that dot these regions will help keep hunger at bay while supporting local economies. Additionally, we will be planting mangroves in the Sundarbans! This is an incredible region of marine biodiversity and mangroves here will help with maintaining healthy fisheries, climate resilience, and carbon sequestration.

WHY ARE TREES IMPORTANT TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity.
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
