From Tiny Seeds to Mighty Trees: Dholakia Foundation's Story of Planting a Greener Future

Our organisation - Dholakia Foundation - stands out as a beacon of hope in a world grappling with environmental challenges. 

We aim to create a greener, more sustainable future and strive as a dedicated tree plantation organisation in India. We have embarked on a remarkable journey of planting seeds, literally and metaphorically. From tiny seeds, we have nurtured mighty trees, transforming landscapes, empowering communities, and inspiring change. 

We want you to dive into our inspiring story and understand how we significantly impact our planet as a dynamic tree plantation organisation in India.

The Seeds of Inspiration

The story of the Dholakia Foundation began with the vision of one man, Mr Savji Dholakia, a philanthropist and environmentalist. Dholakia Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Hari Krishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. that works toward promoting sustainable development and building a more equitable world.

His deep love for nature and concern for the environment inspired him. He set out to create India’s leading tree plantation organisation that would make a tangible difference. With the belief that every individual has the power to contribute, Mr. Dholakia laid the foundation of a movement that would plant the seeds of change.

Planting Trees, Growing Communities

The heart of the Dholakia Foundation's mission is to work toward reforestation and restoration of degraded lands. 

We have recognised the critical role trees play in combating climate change, preserving biodiversity, and improving the livelihoods of communities. 

The Tree Plantation Drive is an initiative to create greener lands in Gujarat & Maharashtra and restore the Earth's lungs. It also leverages the overall Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework for Global Corporations. 

So far, we have successfully planted over 2.5 million trees across 25 locations in India. 

The age of the trees we have planted spans a remarkable range, from 20-year-old saplings to ancient specimens gracing the Earth for over 1500 years.

This deliberate diversity in the tree age ensures the creation of robust ecosystems. It provides immediate environmental benefits while safeguarding our green landscapes' biodiversity and longevity.

Planting a Greener Future -  Dholakia Foundation's Inspiring Journey

A Pledge to Preserve the Environment

Hari Krishna Exports' employees have pledged to actively contribute to environmental conservation and sustainability through tree planting.

They recognise the importance of safeguarding the environment and are committed to positively impacting the planet. They exemplify their corporate responsibility and dedication to preserving nature's gifts by dedicating their time and effort to tree-planting initiatives.

Their collective pledge promotes a greener and healthier environment, inspiring others to join the cause and actively participate in building a sustainable future.

A Plant to Your Name

Hari Krishna Exports embraces a unique initiative beyond its core business activities. Every year for their participation in diamond and jewellery exhibitions, they go above and beyond.

Every visitor who stops by their booth, they plant a tree in the visitor's name. This practice demonstrates their commitment to environmental sustainability and desire to give back to nature.

Hari Krishna Exports raises awareness about the importance of tree planting and encourages individuals to participate in preserving the environment. This gesture serves as a reminder that everyone can contribute to a greener future.

Our story, as the Dholakia Foundation, is an inspiring testament to the power of individuals and communities coming together to make a difference. Through our relentless efforts in planting trees and nurturing sustainable practices, we have sown the seeds of environmental development and sustainability in India.

Our journey reminds us that incredible transformations can arise from tiny seeds. Let us take inspiration from our story and contribute to creating a greener future, one seed at a time. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the planet and pave the way for a sustainable and thriving world.
