Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Dehradun

Total Budget: $40,000

Area of Focus: Community economic development



Cremation in India is performed on an open-air pyre . According to a report, all the year round, around 50 to 60 million trees are burned during cremations in India. While burning the wood, there is emission of millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide gas which is not good for the environment. The main drawbacks of the traditional method of cremation are air pollution, deforestation and the high expense. This project is to provide a gas fired cremation chamber to a crematorium situated at Sahastradhara Road, Dehradun which is environment friendly and cost effective. It should be noted that this neighborhood is primarily occupied by middle class families, who would benefit the most from the use of this facility. The crematorium is a gas fired chamber which minimizes smoke & odour and does not use wood which is required in traditional open-air pyre.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
