Vodafone, join hands to develop India's first private wildlife corridor

Vodafone India and, the exclusive Indian Planting Partner for United Nation’s Environment Program’s Billion Tree Campaign, have started planting on site 300,000 trees to create India’s first private wildlife corridor between Kanha and Pench national parks.

Ashish Chandra, Business Head – MP&CG, Vodafone India and Bikrant Tiwary, CEO,, led members of their teams to the actual planting site located in the Sijhora Range. This site is jointly protected by three villages – Majhipur, Jogisoda and Chandiya.

A variety of trees, including Karani, Harra, Baheda, Bamboo, Khamer, Ladiya, Mango and Amla, that are local to the region are being planted. Saplings of these are cultivated in special nurseries funded by and then planted on site.

Over 100,000 trees will be planted every year and the entire corridor connecting Kanha and Pench will be developed on 100-hectares of forest land between the two reserves, over a three-year period.

This project will create about 25,000 workdays of direct jobs mainly for women and tribals inhabiting the area in addition to supporting several allied livelihood generating activities such as farming, fruit and honey gathering, etc., on a sustained basis.

The 300,000 trees being planted will also help Vodafone India offset the carbon footprint generated by its offices across the country.
