“SMALL ACTS WHEN MULTIPLIED BY PEOPLE CAN TRANSFORM THE WORLD”.
33% of the Earth’s surface is Desert. Rajasthan is home to some of the largest deserts in our country. There is a growing need to plant more trees and convert these wastelands into productive areas. Greening of the deserts has the potential to solve global problems such as water, energy, food and ecological imbalance.
Project URVARA is a community-based, not-for-profit initiative that aims to green the deserts and cultivate our natural oxygen cylinders which is the need of the hour. We convert wastelands into a green cultivable belt with minimum water. We have taken it upon ourselves to educate, encourage & involve communities in this dry arid territory to grow plants with just one liter of water per plant for life.
- INR 6000 WILL HELP PLANT 40 TREES.
INR 15,000 WILL HELP PLANT 100 TREES.
INR 30,000 WILL HELP GREEN ONE ACRE OF LAND.
PEOPLE BEHIND PROJECT URVARA
(Pic above shows Padmashree Shri Sundaram Varma ji during an award ceremony.)
We are carrying forward this project under the able guidance of Shri Sundaram Varma ji, an acclaimed Environmentalist who was awarded Padmashree in 2020. He developed agricultural techniques called “the Dry-Land Agroforestry”. This technique allows for tree plantation in dry regions with just one litre of water.
My name is Adhi Daiv. I am 15 years old and in grade 11 at The Shri Ram School, Moulsari.
It is extremely disheartening to know that there are several waste lands in Rajasthan specially in Sikar District.
I invite you to join us in this journey to transform us.
Through this initiative, We would like to contribute in converting those areas into green lands. This would create a lot of benefits to the communities in these areas including better air quality, livelihood, etc. It costs just INR 30,000 to completely transform one acre of land. Each tree that would be planted costs just INR 150! I was very surprised to learn that these trees require only one litre of water which I think is incredible. I am also very excited to be working with Shri Sundaram Varma ji, a Padma Shri awardee who is extremely well versed in this.
Please support this campaign. I request you to join us in this journey to transform many acres of waste land into abundant green belt in Rajasthan.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
