A PROGRAM WITH MULTIPLE IMPACTS
With the support of the French NGO Up2green and its local partner VIKALP (accredited by The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – UNFCCC and The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification – UNCCD), 10 330 fruit and forest trees were handed over to 215 families to be planted between July and September 2019.
All these volunteer families, spread over 13 villages, have signed a planting agreement on the land they own and are therefore beneficiaries of the TEAMWORK programme. They will be supervised and monitored for 5 years by Himanshu Banker, VIKALP’s administrator-manager, at the end of which the trees will become their property.
The benefits of the program supported by TEAMWORK are wide-reaching, from socio-economic to educational and environmental.
A PROGRAMME IN LINE WITH THE "SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES" OF THE UNITED NATIONS AND UNESCO
The program we are funding entirely meets 3 of the 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” adopted in 2015 by a large number of Heads of State and Government, senior UN officials and representatives of civil society during the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, in which UNESCO actively participates:
CSR & eco-responsibility
To raise the bar even higher in terms of CSR and eco-responsible, TEAMWORK has chosen to finance a community reforestation and agroforestry programme for 10 000 trees in India’s Tapi District, Gujarat State Province.
