“Never did I ever think about starting this NGO, and it was not planned and executed. One day I just wished to plant a sapling in my backyard as a hobby, and later that turned into a full-time job for me. After planting the scaling, I was eager to take care of it, and that is when I realised that it needed constant upkeep that a gardener could provide.So, when I finally started to take this as a full-time job, I thought that schools and colleges are the places where one can find a gardener who will take care of the plants. I decided to dwell on this opportunity. Hence, I started partnering up with the schools in Haryana, where I used to take down the names of the students willing to participate in this and then make the arrangement accordingly. We label each sapling with the respective students' names and even number the plant. Since last year, we have planted over 1000 trees so far and have faced a setback due to the pandemic.Considering the current situation, people have been more inclined to plant trees, and hence I wish to make this process online. Say people register for planting a tree online, and we provide them with a number that acts as the identity of that plant. We produce it on their behalf and keep them updated regularly with its progress. I genuinely think that planting more and more trees is one of the best solutions to most of our mundane problems. I hope people feel the same and are motivated to do the same.This application is still in its primitive stages and will be very soon. Since I cannot plant all the trees myself, I am looking for more volunteers for this revolutionary idea. Today my family supports me for this, but I hope that with this application, I will be able to secure some funding as well.People should leap of faith and do whatever they want.”
