As you all know Saalumarada Thimmakka is an legendary centenarian achiever in concern with the environment.
Thimmakka’s inspiring work has shown us the Power of One: of how one woman, with nothing more than her love and dedication and her own two hands, has made a difference, creating a beautiful environment along a 4 km stretch of road in Hulikal village of Karnataka. The banyan trees that she has planted and nurtured between Hulikal and Kudur now constitute a marvelous ecosystem that provides shade and resting places for humans and animals, food and shelter for birds and insects, and verdant green cover that has helped rejuvenate the environment in the entire area. These magnificent banyan trees will stand for years to come as a lasting legacy of Saalumarada Thimmakkka’s life’s work which we hope will inspire others to follow her example.
We being humans have always received great favour from nature, but in return we have given destruction as a gift to the same Mother Nature. But such great human being like Thimmakka’s spirit by her great gift to the nature, we can keep their efforts as an ideal for us and atleast now we can create awareness among us towards preserving nature.
So, by keeping the nature concern “Saalumarada Thimmakka International Foundation” trust was founded in 14th February 2014.
