Smritivan-Warje Urban Forestry
As the name suggests, Smritivan’ means ‘Forest of memory’. The project covers total 16 hectare waste hill land where Up till now more than 2000 plants with 8-9 feet height were planted, in collaboration with Maharashtra Forest Department and CSR partners TATA Motors and Persistent Foundation. We are providing facility that people can adopt a plant in the memory of their loved ones and can look after the plant. TERRE has received a great success to develop this waste hill land.
Light For Brilliance
A project dedicated to maximum utilisation of renewable or alternative sources of energy to light up lives of millions of families for whom darkness is an everyday reality. TERRE Policy Centre has embarked on a mission to distribute solar lamps of 0.5Watts in rural areas of the country where electricity is scarce. These lamps are pre-installed with solar panels which get charged on exposure to the sun. Leaving them out the entire day will ensure a light supply for no less than 8 hours.
How can you contribute?
Each lamp costs INR 250. The scheme “One for One” proposed by TERRE states that an individual contribution of a minimum of 2 lamps i.e. INR 500 will ensure one lamp is given to the contributor and the other is donated to the target group. It is mandatory to buy a minimum of two lamps.
