Thank you for collaborating with us, Aryatara Institute!

We are happy to announce our official partnership with Aryatara Institute in Germany!

Aryatara Institute has been collaborating with us since the early days of the Global Tree Initiative (GTI). It was a natural progression to recognize each other mutually as partners.

Hermann Wittekopf, our loyal friend, was one of our first GTI volunteers (now retired). As a volunteer at Aryatara Institute, he helped us establish our initial heartful connection with Aryatara Institute.

Then, another Aryatara volunteer, Sophie Kaiser, joined our GTI volunteer team. Like Hermann, she helped nurture the friendship between Aryatara Institute and the Global Tree Initiative.

To their credit, Aryatara Institute has:

– planted and dedicated 108 trees in October 2020.
– planted and dedicated 3 trees by Lothar Pickelmann in September 2021 (as part of Aryatara Institute).
– sponsored a tree for our founder, Ösel, on his birthday in February 2022.
invited the GTI coordinator and his wife to the center and offered books and other gifts in May 2022.

Thank you for your ongoing support, Aryatara Institute! We are happy about our partnership. We look forward to cultivating our friendship even more in the coming years!
