      Sacred Earth Trust initiative to develop an eco learning and performing arts centre situated in a central location of Bodhgaya, providing access to local and international visitors.

    • Education

      Providing education and raising awareness of our environment is a vital part of our work. It is a key factor that will determine the future and success of our life and the lives of many other species on this planet. Raising the consciousness of humanity globally has become a prerequisite if we want to continue living with nature on this planet.

      We provide environmental education programmes and training for schools, community groups and the public. We provide teacher training and run accredited permaculture courses Support Us 

    • Environmental Protection

      We have been instrumental in the clean up of much waste in the Bodhgaya area. We work with local government, monasteries and the community in an effort to reduce some of the toxic waste that gets dumped. We have set up a plastic up-cycling facility to reduce and reuse some of the waste that is created to transform it into plastic blocks for construction.

      Our facilities  demonstrate the use of the waste plastic to build sanitation solutions. These projects have been in partnership with government bodies, to advise and consultancy on sustainable waste management systems, developed water management systems in preparation and response to climate change. To secure and maintain basic resources, such as ground water for drinking, and set up rain water collection. Support Us 

    • Tree Planting

      We run planting programmes with schools, land owners and other community groups

      We have funded the purchase and planting of many trees throughout India, Sikkim and around Bodhgaya where we are based.

      We also forge partnerships with national and international NGOs, businesses and like minds.

    • Saraswati Project

      We have supported a number of women's groups to cooperate and work together towards a common goal. We encourage these groups to form their own social enterprise where appropriate.
