Track every tree online - Launching Kalpavriksha website


Your Kalpavriksha Website (http://www.mykalpavriksha.org) is now LIVE and kicking !
For the first time across this planet (we think so), you can track every single tree, view latest tree pictures, monitor every single donation, see each rupee spend, view entire book of accounts, check the status of the trees you are volunteering or leading, see the trees you donated - and apply for being a volunteer or a leader - all open to public...
Read on...

We kept our commitment for this year, and we now have a global outreach with the launch of Kalpavriksha website.

What are we targeting?
To plant 1 Million Trees in NCR Delhi. We are fast approaching our target of 100 trees this year.

What had we done until now?
  • 65 Trees 
  • 7 Varieties (Amaltas, Neem, Mango, Gulmohar, Ashoka, Jamun)
  • 5 Locations (all within Janak Puri Area)
  • 6 Volunteers
  • 1 Leader
  • 9 Donors
  • 95% Survival Rate (2017) [In 2016, Survival Rate was close to 50%]

What have we done to spike the Survival Rate?

Last year, when we started Kalpavriksha, the survival rate was close to 50%. We learnt from our experiences. We took numerous steps to ensure that the survival rate for our trees increases. Some such steps taken this year:
  • Planted trees which are at least 2 years old
  • Fenced each tree 
  • Tagged a volunteer for each tree

What makes us unique?
  1. Easily Replicable Framework : The entire framework is easily replicable. Anyone can join our framework, follow a well defined process, and start his or her own mini NGO. 
  2. Anyone can be a Leader : You can be a leader of this NGO - at peer with all other leaders - thus avoiding any hierarchy within the organisation. This is a 100% top flat organisation. This makes us easily expandable - with no constraints of distance. All you got to do is to "Apply for a Leader" from the website.
  3. 100% Transparency of funds : Each leader can collect funds and is bound to display the book of accounts online for everyone to have a transparent look on every donation and every expense made. No leader can accumulate more than INR 10,000 at any instance. Funds need to be utilized first before collecting more. Have a look at our "Account Book" online.
  4. Anyone can volunteer : You can volunteer to take care of a certain set of trees if you do not want or do not have the time to lead in your area. Volunteering is a 5-10 min commitment twice a week to improve the air quality around your own area, and an amazing give back to the society.
  5. Anyone can Donate and then Track Donations: You can donate if you do not wish to be provide your services as a volunteer or leader. You can then track your donations with respect to the trees that were planted with your donations.
  6. We do not just plant trees : It is never about just planting trees. There is just too much happening on tree plantation. It is all about taking care of them, nurturing them until they are big enough to take care of themselves. Our volunteers ensure that they survive for at least 3 years - after which they are in the lap of Mother Nature.
  7. Track Lifespan of a Tree : Volunteers take snaps of trees planted at their managed locations, and upload it to this Website. That way, you can see your tree grow. Nothing is as satisfying as your donations or volunteering efforts being put to right use, and you being able to see the change from your own eyes.
All these unique features gives us that edge. These give us the potential to plan for our target of 1 Million Trees in NCR Delhi.

What all  can you do from the Website
This website now opens up unlimited possibilities for each one of you:






1/ Track every single Tree
Each Tree on the ground is provided with a unique ID number. You can track each tree online - via the same Tree ID that each physical tree is labelled with. Have a look at who is volunteering and taking care for a specific tree,  who has donated funds for that tree, who is leading the Kalpavriksha in that area, view the tree location and variety, check its current Status and even view all its pictures since birth. If you are a Donor with Kalpavriksha, then you can also look at the trees that are growing with your donations (after logging in)


2/ View Lifespan Pics of any Tree
Volunteers take snaps of trees planted at their managed locations, and upload it to this Website. 
This way, you can see your tree grow. Nothing is as satisfying as your donations or volunteering efforts being put to right use, and you being able to see the change from your own eyes. Isn't it?



3/ Track Tree Varieties
Track the varieties of trees and their numbers. You would find trees of varieties like Neem, Amaltas, Gulmohar, Mango and Jamun.






4/ Track Tree Locations or Tell Us a New Location
Track every single location where trees have been planted. You can even get details of the address of each location and find out who is the volunteer for that location. So, if on any day - you wish to take a selfie with your donated tree, you do not have to struggle finding the required details. Also, if you know of a location where even a single tree can be planted, do let us know through the website. We will get the rest of it done.


5/ Meet our Volunteers or Nominate a New Volunteer
Get to meet our volunteers who are devoting their time to nurture these trees. View the location they are volunteering, and even connect with them over email or phone. You will also be able to nominate yourself (or anyone else you would like to) as a volunteer of Kalpavriksha in your area. You can call us - we will get the trees planted in your area, get them fenced, explain you the process - and then you can just take care of the trees. If you are a Volunteer with Kalpavriksha, you can also view the trees you are volunteering (after logging in).


6/ Track All Donors
Meet our Donors, whose generosity has helped us make some impact. See each donor and even the amounts each of them have donated.  If you are a Donor with Kalpavriksha, then you can also look at the trees that are growing with your donations (after logging in). So, go on, go ahead and donate right now.



7/ Track All Funds
You will be able to donate online, and track your donation online. Find where are your funds going. you will soon be able to get a certificate of donation printed online. You can also have a look at other donors. You can, in fact, view our Account Books online and understand where each donation is going.




8/ Nominate Yourself to Serve as a Leader
You will be able to nominate yourself as a leader of Kalpavriksha in your area. We will come and plant the trees, get them fenced, and even train you - so that you can efficiently run your own mini NGO.

So, get set as we leap forward on this beautiful journey - in line with our mission - to leave this planet a better place than what we inherited.

What we seek from you
  1. Your best wishes. Every wish counts. We need you to bless us.
  2. Like and share our facebook page and our website
  3. Share your ideas to help us grow faster.
  4. Donate whatever you comfortably can (any amount - even 1 Rs. is valuable). Approximate cost for a tree sapling - with fencing and tagging is INR 250.
