The Fruit Tree Project, India
The Fruit Tree Project
In 2020, The Exodus Travels Foundation teamed up with the SankalpTaru Foundation, an Indian-based NGO that supports sustainable farming, and commissioned the plantation of 4000 apple and apricot trees in one of India’s most remote mountainous regions of Ladakh. Planting in this notoriously difficult terrain will not only provide local communities with an extra source of income once the trees begin to fruit, but the project also acts as a new carbon sink in the area which aligns with our mission to contribute towards a cleaner and greener planet.
In light of the devastating impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic on tourism in this beautiful region, it is timely and more important than ever to establish an alternative source of income for families and vulnerable communities. These saplings will eventually ensure a sustainable and guaranteed source of sustenance for the surrounding community. As this inspiring project flourishes in the weeks and months to come, we will keep you updated. If you’d like to donate to The Fruit Tree Project, you can do so using the donation button below.
