Neem Sapling Collection

November 22, 2011 divider image

The Green City & Pollution Control Committee brought to successful conclusion this mammoth project in which they distributed 11000 posters & Neem Seeds to students of various Schools & at slums.

The aim of the project was to generate awareness amongst children about the benefits of Plants. The project encouraged the Schools to make the sapling growing as part of the curriculum and motivate the students for better participation.

These saplings were collected on 13th Nov 2011 at St. Ursula School and the overwhelming participation of students was there for everyone to enjoy. The students enjoyed the ice-creams and the gifts given to them to recognize their efforts in taking care of the sapling for almost 4 months. The final collection of approx. 1700 saplings was heartening. The students were kept busy with a brain stimulating Quiz by Rtn. Sapna Vastani and gifts were given to those giving the correct answers sponsored by Tauby’s & Rtn. Rajeev Jhavery. The committee started the collection of saplings from Sevanand School, Koradi on 11th Nov where students grew around 350 saplings. This was followed up with the collection program at St. Ursula School. Then the team collected saplings from Vivekanand School, Pandhurna whose students grew over 100 saplings. The collected saplings will be given to Neem Foundation which had given us saplings free of cost during monsoons for our plantation program at Butibori.

We would like to express our Gratitude to Mrs. Rachna Singh, Principal of St. Ursula School and her team for making available her school for this program. Mrs. Reena Ravikumar of St. Ursula School was a great help.

The event was made successful by unflinching & resolute support of Tauby Bhagwagar, President, Rtn. Dinesh Naidu, Secretary & Rtn.
