In partnership with Government of India’s National Mission on Clean Ganga and through its NGO partner Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), HCL Foundation will plant 10,000 trees in 5 years along the Ganga River.

To scale up the Afforestation movement of native species like Oak and Rudraksh, the Foundation signed a Tri-party MoU with NMCG (National Mission for Clean Ganga) and INTACH (Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage).

With a decent backing from local stakeholders, The Foundation, through the MoU will also support the conservation of these patches. The plantation of 500 saplings has already been completed this year by the HCL Foundation in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand.

“Our partnership is going to be very crucial for the Eco system of mid Himalayan range of Uttarakhand, where the Ganges takes shape. The Afforestation drive along the rivers Hindon and Yamuna has been key factor to the Clean Ganga project, as these are two very important tributaries of river Ganga. Today’s MoU is a step towards that direction,” said Nidhi Pundhir, Director- CSR Head– HCL Foundation, while talking about the development.
