Illinois residents from DSNDP Sow the seeds of sustainability!
Illinois State residents joined hands as dedicated volunteers of the global non-profit
organization Dr. Shri Nanasaheb Dharmadhikari Pratishthan (DSNDP),
undertaking a Tree Plantation Event in collaboration with the Illinois - Department
of Natural Resources at Kankakee River State Park 5314 IL-102, Bourbonnais on June 9th,
In alignment with the motto "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" (The world is one
family),DSNDP aims to foster a brighter future by advocating for tree
plantation/conservation in collaboration with the US government to address the
demand for reforestation, regulate environmental temperature, prevent soil erosion,
and promote biodiversity. These initiatives include planting trees, seed ball making,
weed management, removal of invasive plant species and are executed under the
guidance of the founders of the organization Dr. Shri. Appasaheb Dharmadhikai
and Dr. Shri. Sachindada Dharmadhikari.
The June 9th Tree Plantation Event by DSNDP had a significant impact at Kankakee
River State Park in Bourbonnais, Kankakee County. 8 dedicated volunteers
contributed 24 hours of work to plant and water 216 native species across
approximately 750 square feet. They also removed around 350 pounds of invasive
species, filling 15 bags. Previously in Illinois, the organization has carried out three
programs with 35 volunteers who collectively invested 123 hours to plant 4,359
trees. This collaboration between the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and
DSNDP demonstrates their joint commitment to enhancing Illinois' natural beauty,
progressing one mile at a time.
Such initiatives are an integral part of DSNDP’s Nationwide Tree Plantation
andConservation Drive, reaching across 15 states and 33 cities. During these
cleanliness drives, DSNDP has successfully engaged 614 volunteers, actively
planting 17713 trees and collecting more than 14000 pounds of garbage and
weeds, resulting in significant cost savings for the government. The organization
has received accolades from various state and county governments in the form of
17 certificates and 11 media coverages.
The organization is also involved in cleanliness drives across 18 states and 73 cities
within the US. DSNDP is also involved in health initiatives such as the Women's
Cancer Awareness Conference successfully hosted in February 2023 and blood/
plasma donation drives in Canada and the United States in recent years. DSNDP
also recently organized a Mega Cleanliness Drive and Tree Conservation Event
across 21 locations simultaneously to celebrate Earth Day 2024.
