Saplings have been procured by Rahul.
Twenty Saplings have been planted in the vicinity of the pond on the JNU rd connecting Vasant Kunj and JNU. arrangements have been made to water them regularly. Let us see how many survive after four months. Hopefully these plants will prevent people from throwing.
Children were taken from the class room to the Sector A park where Mr Puran Chand demonsrated how saplings are to be planted. All the kids watched the demo. They were explained about need for planting saplings in this season and time by Mr Nareshwar Prasad. Five of the children have taken saplings home. Later they confirmed having planted them. There is a demand for more saplings.
Srijan Foundation will support an NGO engaged in tree plantation activity in HimachalPradesh. A sum of Rs 6000/- has been earmarked for this purpose.
