Qaragach Foundation’s goal is to bring the culture of sustainable development to society and contribute to the green economy. We believe that each of us can make contribution to the conservation of nature for present and future generations.

Engaging people of all ages to join a sustainable lifestyle and reduce their environmental footprint. Expansion of environmental education among the general public in various formats with the use of modern technologies. Support business and government structures in the implementation of the principles of the green economy in their activities.

Strengthening ecosystems through reforestation, agrotechnical tree care, implementation of initiatives to reduce desertification and aid in regeneration of natural areas.

Popularization of volunteering
Assistance in the development of voluntary work and other activities in the interests of nature conservation. Support of green communities, environmental initiatives, including the partnership with other organizations, aimed at achieving the goals of the Fund.
Plant the Forest
a service restoring nature
Plant the Forest is a set of initiatives to restore drylands and support in climate adaptation. The reforestation program is implemented in 3 main directions:
  • Forest restoration by planting trees in the lands affected by wildfires, clearances, and natural disasters
  • Making and maintaining campaigns to offset carbon footprint
  • Popularization of volunteering activities

How it works?

Plant the Forest operates as a crowdfunding platform, we’re receiving money from people and businesses for tree planting. After the accumulation of sufficient amount of funds, the next step is selecting the region where planting will take place. We decide which region is in need of reforestation and arrange planting events with local coordinators there. Planting events are coordinated with each region’s official forestry service. Forestry service prepares the soil using trucks and special machines. By that time our team and forestry service decides on tree nurseries, species of trees, and general amount of seedlings. Afterwards, trees are planted by volunteers. We organize transfers and food at every planting site.

Reports and results
After planting events, we create a photo report. You can find information regarding latest plantings in our social media accounts. If you supported the project by purchasing a tree planting certificate, a full report will be sent to your e-mail in 2−3 months after the event. A typical full report includes photos, videos, GPS coordinates, number of planted trees, and a number of volunteers participating in the event.

Our project makes sure trees flourish so they can protect the environment in the future. Plant the Forest project not only plants seedlings, but also ensures that they will turn into large beautiful trees. Our volunteers participate in agricultural care.
International Volunteer Camp
International Volunteer Camp involves volunteers from various countries in solving environmental problems. We focus on preservation and restoration of drylands, forests, and water bodies. Our mission is to train volunteers in many aspects of environmental protection and accelerate the development of their own environmental initiatives.

Each region has a natural area that needs special attention and a large number of participants to stop degradation of land, improve state of the environment and living conditions of the local population.

Young people worldwide are ready to pay their attention and spend time participating in volunteer environmental projects. This gives countries which wish to focus on solving environmental problems a chance to get a large number of interested people, fight xenophobia, and celebrate local culture.
environmental education for everyone
Ecoclass.info — Environmental lessons given in schools by local teachers, parents, and environmental leaders. The EcoClass platform provides a suite of methodological materials such as study guides, video lessons, workbooks, presentations, in-class games, and more. Our materials are created by professional educators and methodologists, biologists, environmental practitioners, designers, and IT specialists.

Our lessons help to develop environmental care skills in a variety of areas: water and energy conservation, waste sorting, innovative technologies for the environment, green jobs of the future, and many others.

The lessons have an interactive game format and are very popular with teachers and students. The experience that we accumulated over 6 years of work in the area of environment is systematized and designed in bright modern materials written in a language accessible to children.

EcoClass lessons are free and available to everyone. Although, we work with partners to create lessons on new topics and are open for cooperation to produce lessons upon your request.
