PPI’s tree planting projects began in 2008, when Chinthana  Foundation in Karnataka approached PPI with the vision of transforming barren land near a school into a horticulture and agroforestry plot. They wanted to educate students and their families in planting and maintaining trees and in bio-diversity. Chinthana  foundation has since expanded their program to many neighboring schools.

Over the last 15 years, PPI has funded similar projects with Vikasana in Karnataka, Aaakanksa Sewa Sadan in Bihar and with MLDMHI in Maharashtra. The emphasis in these projects is on growing local varieties of trees for food, shade, fodder, and fuel. School children and their families are stewards of the trees. The long-term tree survival rate in all our projects is around 90%.
