Activities such as these help purify the air, enhance the beauty of the surrounding and bring in optimism in people in the surrounding area.
This initiative also forms a part of Avashya Foundation’s flagship environment sustainability programme Maitree. In the last two years, Avashya Foundation has planted over 2,39,000 trees under this program.
