Planting trees to impact marginal farmers in Sunderbans, West Bengal, India

Chandanpiri, Namkhana, Sunderbans, West Bengal. 


Where the river meets the sea. 
One hundred and fifty kms south of Kolkata in the Sunderbans Delta

3000 fruit trees were planted in homesteads 

of around 500 marginal farmers with the assistance 
of NGO Wildlife Protection Society of India.

Each homestead planted and nurtured 

fruit tree saplings from amongst  
Mango, Sapota, Lemon, Bananas and Guava.  

We at Sustainable Green Initiative are helping nurture 
and monitor to ensure over 80% survival 
of the saplings into mature trees and into fruiting.

The impact on the income of the households 

from the trees will be measurable from year 3, 
ie 2018 and is estimated to increase 
the average household income 
by up to US$ 100/- or INR 5500/- 
per annum and will continue for the next 40-50 years. 

This is besides the income or nutritional benefits 
of vegetables that we will help them to inter-crop. 
Thank you for taking part in this growth story.
Impacting people lives .
