Green Sakthi is a non-profit environmental programme that plants trees, does zero waste and educates local school kids in all things about Mother Earth. Based in rural South India and founded by living saint Sri Sakthi Amma. Green Sakthi is a collective committed to deepening the relationship between people and nature.
To inspire children and adults around the world to connect and care for nature through environmental education and hands on experience with the earth.
What we do
Every year, we educate 500 students about the environment with hands on experience with planting and maintaining trees on our 2 school campuses.
We have donated over 1 million native trees (grown in our tree nursery) locally including 600 000 trees to 300 villages.
At our Green Sakthi Tree Nursery, we grow and maintain over 400 000 native saplings from seed, employing 15 locals.
5. SOLAR ENERGY
Our solar kitchen is under construction, and once it is operational, will feed 5000 people per day thanks to the power of the sun! We will update the progress!
Over the last 20 years we have planted over 1.5 million trees on our campus and locally, including the State Forestry Dept. managed Kailash Hills.
6. ZERO WASTE + VERMICOMPOST
Every day we collect 2 tonnes of rubbish from our campus: every item is segregated by hand and recycled or turned into compost, thanks to our worms.
