Story


Dear Sir/Mam,

Let me first introduce myself. My name is Naveen Sharma. I am a B.Tech graduate from NIT, Hamirpur Himachal Pradesh in 1997-2001 batch. I worked as software professional at various capacities in many MNCs. I used to be a travel freak during my professional tenure & nature/mountains always fascinated me. I am certified A+ grade trekker & Himachal being my home state, I used to visit it a lot for my adventure tales.


It is during these tours, I realized that climate has started behaving strangely & weirdly specially in the last 15 years. I started reading/researching about it & started collecting data about it. That’s where I found the major areas of concern:


1. Population increase

2. Deforestation

3. Increase in the number of vehicles

4. Mindless construction

5. Global warming


I visited various agencies & collect exact data on these topics & I was shocked to see the catastrophic effect of all above factors that the average temperature of hill cities of Himachal Pradesh has increased by an astonishing 6 degrees in last 30 years.


I got worried & visited various Govt offices with my concerns & I asked what steps they are taking about it but didn't get a satisfactory answer. I tried educating people by organizing educative programs for them during my free time but I realized I was not having enough time due to my professional commitments.


I was so moved that I left my job & moved to Himachal & started working as a freelance professional so that I could work on this goal of saving my mother land.


I figured out that not cutting trees is almost impossible in the emerging need of development/infrastructure etc. I am not against development, but we are not compensating for the harm which we are causing for it. So, I came to a conclusion that planting more trees, intensifying our forest cover & protecting it religiously is the only possible solution. So I concentrated on two parallel programs.


1. Planting trees on Govt./Private land (Trees which grow fast & require minimum care once grown up). For this, I gathered information from our agricultural university in Palampur.

2. Educating people in which ways they can contribute to protect the environment. (Like I try to convince them not to burn the waste in dustbins but to bury it in land)


Once again, I ran from pillar to post in various Govt agencies to support my cause but didn't get any support. All I got were mere promises.


But, I haven't given up. In fact, now I have decided to expand. I have chosen one town as my Pilot Project & I believe if I am able to do this successfully, I might get some support from the Govt. Here is what my plan is.


I'll start from my housing society. I'll install solid waste management system & ask the residents to stop burning the waste.

I already have volunteers from various schools. We'll start planting trees & will protect them. The volunteers will be suitably rewarded for their work

I'll get few things printed & start moving door to door with my team to educate people.


Since, I have been doing this all alone, I need support from every sphere of the society. The estimated cost for the solid waste management plant, trees for plantation etc. is close to 10 lacs. 


I am looking forward for support & I think whoever is concerned with environment can feel the pain of the nature.

Whatever donations you give, you'll start receiving progress report fortnightly.
