The MyTree initiative by Sri M seeks to fulfill Manav Ekta Mission’s aim of promoting sustainable living by encouraging planting of trees. MyTree is inspired by the Sanskrit word – Maitri – meaning amity. This initiative promotes Manav Ekta (oneness of humanity) by encouraging an individual/community-led partnership to plant trees—a human alliance that ensures a sustainable relationship with nature.
The Satsang Foundation volunteers kick-started the tree planting activity in Chennai on 9th September 2016 by partnering with the children and staff of the Army Public School, Nandambakkam to plant about 150 saplings in their grounds.
The volunteers based in Chennai are working towards achieving a target of 1008 saplings being planted by 6th November – 500 in Sep 2016, 508 in Oct 2016, and 68 trees on 6th November 2016 to commemorate Sri M’s birthday. In order to implement this, they are actively reaching out to heads of schools, colleges and corporates for sponsorship of the MyTree project and adopting the planted trees.
