Aamir Khan is overwhelmed with pride and the reason for it is Paani Foundation's recent achievement.

In the span of 2 years starting September 2018, inspired by the great Japanese ecologist Akira Miyawaki - Paani foundation in association with Saytrees Environmental trust embarked on their highly ambitious journey, to turn a barren patch of land into a forest.

Two years later, september 2020 this project was successfully completed. The actor wrote- "Really proud of this experiment done by the team." (sic)

The foundation planted 2000 saplings with the support of villagers from Satara district, Maharashtra. A careful mix of tree species was selected to mimic a forest and minutest attention was paid to the detail of the plantation so that they grew at a rapid speed. The final outcome is tremendous and to be proud of - extremely dense forest with healthy trees, habitat to animals, insects and much more.
