How Ek Kadam Started:
In the year 2014, Sudarshan Jadwal, a young engineer having little 6 years of experience, was driven by extraordinary dream to see a day when no one is looking for other to save our environment & society. Sudarshan was upset to see the situation, how people confused and don’t have clear mind-set to help themselves only.
Then with the inspiration of honourable Mr Gyandev Ji Ahuja (Ex MLA, BJP National representative & Rajasthan State BJP Wise President) started “EK Kadam” with 5 young volunteers initially, Deepak Mishra, Sumit Jadwal, Basant Swami, Rishi Bhushan and Rahisha Yadav. Being all top executives in corporate, we all identified, that the people want to save environment, want to work for it, but don’t know how as well as time in busy schedule.
To overcome this, we prepare Ek Kadam to work, support and fulfil own duty for environmental goals. Ek Kadam providing data & technology enabled platform for plantation. In short we can say, “Ek Kadam is Planting Trees not Saplings”. And our core values are Transparency, Traceability & Sustainability.
In continue with this initially we raised fund of 2 lacs only but after than we planted many sapling with tracking up to 2 years each and did many charitable work like cloth, food, covid medicine etc.
We want to release and facilitate anyone to plant tree and ignite a huge environmental revolution through people individually.
Our Mission is to create a healthy, green and clean planet through tree plantation. And support the society, financially, physically and socially by align their livelihood with environment saving activities.
How We Different:
We believe in result with numeric data, because “The things cannot be measure, Can’t be improved”. Hence our all activities are measurable, transparent and we provide appropriate & strong data base to donors & our supporters. Ek Kadam work with core value (Transparency, Traceability & Sustainability) means we are transparent about what we say, we are traceable & our work grows always.
