Since its launch, the project has been envisioned as a massive people's movement at a grassroots level. Project Green Hands, pilot project of Cauvery Calling has built on this foundation of support from public, corporate and government over the years and has reached out to communities and people across the state of Tamil Nadu. PGH is reestablishing the power of individual action for large-scale change. Government institutions, NGOs, corporate partners, and individuals have pitched in to grow saplings and plant trees, and to support the effort. Through its activities, PGH aims to inspire people around the world to appreciate the true value of trees and the vital role that they play within human environments.
A child’s sensitivity and understanding about what is best to do for the environment outshines most adults. Our model Green School Movement works with children between the ages of 11 - 16 and provides them an opportunity to get directly involved in all aspects of environmental conservation - right from sowing seeds to planting and nurturing a tree.
This experience builds eco-consciousness in each child and open their mind to treat trees and nature as a part of themselves.
