About Malligavad Foundation
Malligavad Foundation is a NGO that was registered in 2019 under the Companies Act. We fall under biodiversity restoration category, our vision and mission is to rejuvenate all the public lakes as naturally as possible. These lakes should be self-sustaining and equipped with the ability to support the ecosystem for generations to come. Complimenting the lake rejuvenation, we plant native trees along the lake, enhancing biodiversity throughout the project. We engage communities around the lake so that they are aware about the lakes and its ecosystem. We are educating people about the methods of rejuvenation to bring awareness to our cause and motivate them to come forward.
Our mission is to create a surplus fresh drinking water planet along with a good forest cover. Lakes and forest ecosystems together play a vital role in reducing the effect of climate change and economy of the planet.
