About Us


Vanarai - People's Movement for Green India

Our country with 325 million hectares of geographical area and having an average rainfall of 20 inches but, nearly 50% of this lands are wastelands or wasted lands. Out of the total rainwater hardly 15% of water is harvested, more than one thousand metric tons of soil is eroded and the siltation is reducing the water holding capacity of our reservoirs. It is advisable that for balance environment one third area should be under permanent green cover, to overcome the threat of climate change, process of desertification and unemployment. Our founder Padma vibhushan Mohan Dharia thought of starting an organization with the motto to avoid the destruction of our ecosystem, environment and water and hence Vanarai was registered under the charitable trust act on 10th July in the year 1986.
