Mero Rukh Mero Santati (MRMS) - Planting 108 trees for every newborn in Sikkim

Plant a Tree, Leave a Legacy


Mero Rukh Mero Santati is a novel green initiative of the Sikkim State Government to strengthen the connect between parents, children and nature by planting trees to commemorate child birth. It aims to plant 108 trees for every newborn child born in Sikkim. Watching the tree grow, as the baby grows, is a symbolic way of commemorating their arrival and is good for the planet as well.

Sikkimese society has had an intimate association with nature since time immemorial. We not only revere our mountains, lakes, rivers, caves and springs, but venerate the entire landscape as sacred. This initiative aims to reinforce this age-old bond of our society with nature. It aspires to co-create an ecosystem where both the tree and the child are able to reach towards the sun, a brighter tomorrow that promises vitality, health and happiness.

To ground this initiative various departments of the Government of Sikkim will converge to facilitate seamless service to the new parents right from enrollment to planting and after care. ASHA, Anganwadi workers, gram panchayats, urban local bodies and forest staff will facilitate the onboarding of the parents.
