A global call to youth by Project Jatropha Team
We are asking all youth from each and every corner of the globe to take responsibility and participate in the fight against climate change by planting at least one useful seedling. Let's plant one seedling at a time. You can start at your own backyard, school, or anywhere-you pick the place. If you try to understand the magnitude of the situation, and the difference that one action can make and how that action can influence others, then you can find a place to plant even one seedling. We are asking individuals, groups, organizations, schools to join us in this venture. If you do decide to do so, please let us know by dropping an email or writing on our blog so that we can include you as a participant member in this effort. We are setting a goal to plant one million trees in 10 years. Project Jatropha has kick-started this endeavor by planting 15,000 seedlings in Kirijaji and Thippalapura, two villages in South India. Please visit our web site to see the details. To help us achieve our goal, we will contact as many local schools as possible. In addition, we are also donating useful seedlings to selected schools which need financial assistance for buying plants. Please contact us and join the fight against climate change.
The ways in which you can help:
1.Planting seedlings and letting us know
2. Donating funds (which are tax-deductible, thanks to our NPO status) to purchase seedlings
3. Volunteering to help us plant in different schools
