Greening Drive on Earth Day
Taking one more positive step towards ensuring a healthy environment, SIF organised plantation drives in three institutions on Earth Day. Children of Navy Children’s School, Guru Nanak School and Bal Sudhargrugh, Dongri Children’s Home planted 5 medicinal plant saplings in each of their institutions, one of each set being the Neem plant, known for its special air purification properties.
In the run up to Earth Day celebrations, the entire month of April was marked as Earth Month by SIF and a series of workshops were conducted in around 150 schools to sensitize children about environmental concerns and promote earth-friendly practices. These workshops were successful in injecting a passion in kids to adopt eco-friendly practices and enthusiastically spread the message to others through exhibitions, skits, slogans and posters.
