Prayas Youth Foundation is a leading environmental organization in Maharashtra. It is an independent NGO registered as a trust/society and actively working to increase green cover of Aurangabad region by adopting scientific and modern techniques of afforestation to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of United Nations. Established in 2010 Mr. Ravi Choudhary along with some NCC cadets, along with the green cover management we are also engaged with other environmental activities as well. We are not only planting the saplings but also converting them into trees by taking proper care of them on regular basis. (Image shared on drive)
