River bank utilized for planting trees
Today it is my pleasure to share you the second report for the project loved and donated by you- Save the Planet: Gift a Tree on Your Birthday. This report covers the further planning of the project, updates of the field and the activities accomplished during the last four months of the year.
With the donation collected during this period Janaki Women Awareness Society (www.jwas.org.np) has managed to plant 130 fruits tree plant (mostly income generating tree plants like mango, litchi, guava etc) in the center part of Dhanusha district. Agreement between farmers of the area and the organization has been made before providing and planting the tree plants. Management of the trees plant till they gets maturity and their safety is under their responsibility as per the contract and JWAS follow ups and technical support will be there for the farmers. Public lands, river banks and other plots where no any agro-crops are cultivated and are being kept idle for years have been utilized to plant the trees which is the key strength of the project for promoting the culture of gifting a tree on memorable life events to promote greenery and at the same time utilizing the unutilized land remained unproductive for years.
In coming days JWAS is planning to go with Save Historical Janakpur, a campaign for promoting greenery and the cleanliness in southern part of Nepal to promote a culture of planting a tree on Birthdays & other memorable life events. This would be the joint efforts for utilizing the lands lying idle for years and promoting greenery in the area. Those lands would develop in a green forest and help us make our environment free of pollution and the forest developed would also be a source of income generation and livelihood promotion for the poor families living in the area as developed forest would be provided to the poor families living in the same clusters.
JWAS target as of now with this project is to develop 10 different plots of forests in Dhanusha with 10000 trees in total. But it depends on the donors like you who will donate to this project for every tree we plant and the cost till it gets maturity. So, we heartily request all to help in saving our planet and making it far better for the generations to come and join hands with JWAS in the mission of stopping global warming by promoting a culture of gifting a tree on your Birthdays and other memorable life events.
