Sima Village in Baglung District, in the serene foothills of West Nepal, has become a testament to environmental stewardship through our impactful tree planting initiative. Spearheaded by our dedicated team, this endeavour has successfully planted 500 trees to date, heralding a remarkable 90% + survival rate for the saplings—an achievement emblematic of our commitment to reforestation and sustainability.
The beauty of this project lies not only in the numbers but in the profound impact on the local ecosystem. These trees, nurtured with care, promise a greener future for Sima Village and beyond. They serve as guardians, combating deforestation, preserving biodiversity, and mitigating the effects of climate change—a vital contribution in today’s world. Looking ahead, our vision extends further. In early 2024, we aim to replicate this first phase by planting another 500 trees. This ambitious yet crucial undertaking reflects our unwavering dedication to bolstering our environment and fostering a healthier planet for generations to come.
We invite individuals and organizations alike to join hands in supporting our cause. One impactful way to contribute is by offsetting carbon emissions—be it from flights or other sources—through our user friendly
online portal. Partnering with CRED Foundation in the UK, our Trees tab on the website provides comprehensive details on how each individual can make a tangible difference.
