In the last 15 years, we've lost more than 32000 hectares of Delhi's green cover because of concrete expansion. It's time we do our part to recover it. 

Swechha has been actively engaging the youth, media, government and civil society on issues of social and environmental development. Our green efforts range from waste upcycling and environmental fellowship programs to river clean ups and creation of urban mini forests. Monsoon Wooding is one such action packed annual Swechha campaign that aims at conserving and creating green spaces across Delhi. Through the campaign, since 2006 more than 1000 youth volunteers have planted and distributed close to 5000 saplings across Delhi, we even planted Delhi\'s first urban mini forest with native tree species in St. Mary's school, Dwarka.

This year, we envision making Monsoon Wooding bigger. We want Monsoon Wooding to be run by concerned citizens like you. We aim to plant 10000 trees in the capital, but we can't do this without your support. 

Each tree costs Rs. 300/- to plant and maintain, your contribution can help in restoring some of Delhi's lost greenery. To make it even more interesting we have started this campaign on BitGiving, that enables you to be a part of this amazing green initiative.

All donors will receive a special mention on the Swechha website. This is how each donation leads to action in the campaign:

We are asking for a minimum contribution of 300/- per sapling. The money will go towards:

  • Transport (for volunteers, saplings, manure and other essential material)
  • Maintenance (we will ensure that a gardener/caretaker is employed to do post plantation maintenance for a period of 6 months - 1 year)
  • Bio mass and machinery for urban mini forest creation
  • Manure and tools
  • Advocacy initiatives to put pressure on the government to protect Delhi's existing green cover
  • Buzz on the streets - to connect with people
