The need for 3 E PROGRAMME
Creating a favorable ecological system is an environmental need that requires our due attention. Vanarai with its 35 years of experience have been addressing and working towards ecological restoration. We have observed that Ecological restoration happens successfully when the SOCIO-ECONOMIC condition is developing. For which, Vanarai is continuously working towards Ecological restoration through SOCIO-ECONOMICUpliftment.
Our founder Late Shri. Padmavibhushan Mohan Dhariastarted a “People’s Movement for a Green India” – his dream is to make India Sujalaam-Sufalaam. We are obliged to take his noble vision ahead and work towards achieving what he dreamt of.
We want to see our country move upwards economically. 2/3rds of India’s population resides in Rural India. Economic improvement of our country can be achieved when we collectively work towards increasing the per capita income of people in Rural India. Currently the per capita income of Rural India is around Rs.41,000/- compared to their Urban counter part which is around Rs.1,00,00/-

3 E programme (ECOLOGY | ECONOMY | EMPOWERMENT)
What is Vanarai doing?
Rural India has a strength of possessing “Land” Vanarai aims to Empower the Village in order to benefit from this strength optimally. Developing any land into a Green Landscape the first and foremost thing is to have adequate water to support this Development.
Vanarai first focuses on water conservation that intends to benefit the villagers to have
- Year round Drinking water availability
- Adequate water for farming – taking extra harvests as compared to the past
- Adequate water supply for Household needs
- Excess water for plantation activity – SETTING THE BASE FOR 3 E PROGRAMME
Water being a basic necessity after being made available; it opens door for improving the income sources of Villages. This is where the 3 E programme comes into play. A PROGRAMME THAT CREATES A “PEOPLE’S MOVEMENT FOR A GREEN INDIA”
Next step is Research; our plantation experts visit the designated villages and share their plantation proposal keeping in mind the Ecological & Economical contribution that we seek.
