Plant a Million Trees

Plant a Million Tree is an initiative by us with an ambitious (and yet achievable) target of planting a million trees this year.

The mission is aimed to raise awareness, build concern, bring in people, college students, school children, NGOs, environmentalists and corporates together to reach a goal of planting a million treeS in 2018-2019 ends.

Refuse to be a victim [Women Safety and Self Defense Awareness]

We live in a country where women are taught to be within their homes, not to go out late, wear or say something to NOT get raped instead of teaching men NOT to rape.

Women in India are often seen as “dependant” or referred to as the weaker sex. Owing to such thinking, women are considered easy targets by attackers. The crime rate against women is on the rise not only in Pune but the entire nation.

And, hence, YTDS wanted to take a step to empower women by providing safety and self-defense training that teach you how to handle situations of possible attack.

1 - #PLantAMillionTree | 29th July 2018
Kids, Parents, Volunteers, YTDS Team - all got together this Sunday and joined hands for 1 cause - to maintain the trees that have been planted before by us. It’s important to know a tree’s preferred moisture conditions, even if it’s receiving enough water from rainfall alone. Ideally, the tree is planted in the right place and thriving in existing soil conditions. Thus, tree maintenance is important, planting is not just enough for tree's welfare.
