VOLUNTEER-LED EFFORT

Despite irregularities in the system, and interestingly, without financial resources and organizational infrastructures, and understaffs we expanded our roles, responsibilities to meet urgent challenges. We were able to conduct and complete some of the projects and initiatives entirely on a voluntary basis. For three years we have been working tirelessly and operating without a financial proposition that hits us with a different reality.

Though we are not able to hire staff in the day-to-day operations, each individual who has gifted their time, skills in pro bono services are part of team Vriksha. We are exposing young minds to social issues, environmental learning, and knowledge transferring. It’s a platform for multiple voices to contribute and take collaborative action. We are, learning by doing, understanding what is being done at the local level, and seeking accountability and support from the citizen level to go green.

Graduates and Architecture students worked with us in the concept, design process and implementation of urban parks, open spaces, amenities, streetscapes. Aside from technical skills, it is an opportunity to work on your soft skills such as teamwork, and co-operation. The atmosphere within our open studio is non-hierarchical, team-based, and friendly, with attention to personal well-being, multidimensional knowledge, and platform sharing.

Architects, engineers, urban planners were involved in site study, interviews, sketches, 2D, 3D renderings, and making presentations, drawing revisions, 3D and renderings, physical models, cost estimation.
