In a commendable effort to promote environmental sustainability and support local farmers, CarDekho, in collaboration with Grow Billion Trees, recently organized a tree plantation event in Bhairana Village, Jaipur. The initiative aimed not only to contribute to environmental conservation but also to empower farmers by diversifying their income sources.
The tree plantation event witnessed active participation from a dedicated team comprising members from Cardekho, Grow Billion Trees, and Think Good Foundation. The collaboration reflects a shared commitment to environmental responsibility and community development.
The event took on a holistic approach by involving local students from nearby schools. The young participants actively engaged in the tree plantation process, learning firsthand about the significance of tree planting for the environment and its long-term impact on their future. Educating the younger generation about environmental stewardship is crucial for fostering a sense of responsibility towards the planet.
The choice of Bhairana Village as the planting site was strategic. The village is fortunate to have the guidance of Surendra Awana Ji, a National Gopal Ratan awardee and the founder of Rudra Shivam Dairy & Agro Research. Under his leadership, the planting of 12,000 trees not only contributes to environmental conservation but also promises to be a transformative step for the local farmers.
The guest of honor at the event was Padma Shri awardee Shree Laxman Singh, whose innovative rainwater harvesting techniques have made Laporia, a nearby village, drought-proof and poverty-free. Laxman Singh's success story serves as an inspiration for sustainable living and community development.
The trees planted in Bhairana Village are expected to play a vital role in diversifying the income sources of local farmers. As these trees mature, they will provide farmers with additional revenue streams, contributing to their economic well-being. Furthermore, the trees are anticipated to enhance agricultural yield and contribute to the overall ecological balance of the region.
CarDekho.com, India's leading car search venture, has consistently demonstrated a commitment to corporate social responsibility. The initiative aligns with the ethos of the company, whose founder and CEO, Amit Jain, also serves as a judge on Shark Tank India, showcasing a dedication to entrepreneurship and social impact.
GrowBillionTrees.com, a global initiative dedicated to planting and protecting billions of trees, complements this effort by providing the necessary expertise and resources to execute large-scale tree planting initiatives.
The collaborative tree plantation event in Bhairana Village stands as a shining example of corporate social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and community development. It is through such collective efforts that we can create a positive impact on the environment, empower local communities, and build a sustainable future for generations to come.
