We encourage women to work together to grow seedlings and plant trees to bind the soil, store rainwater, provide food and firewood, and receive a small monetary token for their work.

Our vision is to create values-driven society of people who consciously work for continued improvement of their livelihoods and a greener, cleaner world.
