Compassionate Footprint is an ecological project aimed at reducing our carbon footprint that will reduce the greenhouse effect.


It will engage schools, universities, and organizations to adopt trees and become environmentally responsible. We aim to actively spread the project to 160 schools of Karachi (80 privileged and 80 underserved) in the first year. Compassionate behaviors will be instilled in the students of these schools by designing initiatives that prepare them to take ownership of their environment and practice peaceful activities. The first initiative is creating a dialogue regarding a 'peaceful sustainable environment' by having a debate in partnership between the privileged and underserved schools. The second initiative lets you adopt a tree that teaches students about empathy, humility, altruism, and mindfulness (four of CfC's compassionate skills) by making them fully responsible for trees' wellbeing. The project will link privileged and underserved Karachi schools by planting trees in each other's schools. The students will then adopt trees planted by their counterparts. This will teach them to co-exist and practice compassion. The project will expand with the activity being conducted in parks and walls being adopted. The project's final objective will be a complete change in the landscape with the help of the youth in the creation of a harmonious society by instilling a peaceful attitude in them.

Unique perspective (Why is this different)

One of the most affected population by climate change is the residents of third world countries like Pakistan, especially the people residing in rural areas. Unfortunately, these are indivualds most unware of the affects of climate change and ways to curb it. This project will initiate a conversation amongst privileged, as well as, underserved people regarding climate change and will take steps towards making lifetsyles changes in order to curb it.
