Project Mission Respect

Mission Respect was initiated with the intention of giving tribute to the soldiers of the Kargil War. Prayas has planned to plant 527 trees for each of 527 martyrs. It’s a Joint venture of Prayas Youth Foundation and Endress+Hauser. Each plant has a board displayed with the name of the soldier and all the info we have about the soldier.

Many trees are now planted and some are yet to be planted. This helps in balancing the environment and the memories of those soldiers grow as those plants grow old. Shri. Haribhau Bagde inaugurated this project on 26th July 2015.

The Kargil War also known as the Kargil conflict was an armed conflict between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in the Kargil district of Kashmir and elsewhere along the Line of Control (LOC). In India, the conflict is also referred to as Operation Vijay which was the name of the Indian operation to clear the Kargil sector.
