The Prithvi Fund

The word Prithvi in Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language means Earth. The Earth is the basis for all living forms. There is only one Earth with many unique life forms including plants, animals and human beings. The Prithvi Fund was borne out of the vision of nurturing the Earth through initiatives that would enhance an individual’s or a community’s capacity to understand, learn and build skills that would result in sustainable living.
