【India】Battle of Ideas

Article about Anirudh's garden
Article about Anirudh's garden

ANIRUDH stays near the Kanakalaya Bank .He was disturbed by the fact that outside his compound people were dumping wastes. Every time he returned home he could see the wastes getting accumulated. He tried several ways of telling people not to do, but nothing worked .So he came with a novel idea of planting a garden there. He watered it at night time after his studies and protected it. Now it is a beautiful sight to travelers along Kannur NH.

The news came in Mathrubhumi Daily.We were able to create a sense of environmental sensitivity in our students.

【India】Tree-Planting in the Concrete Jungle

Tree planting with OISCA members

SLB Government Higher Secondary School is situated in the heart of the town, which has a high population density of 1106 per sq.km, where green coverage is very low. Due to population pressure in the town, concrete jungles have mushroomed in the town and the outskirts. Unlike other schools, SLB School is blessed with a vast campus area, with space to plant trees and maintain them. To augment the green coverage, the CFP of the school planted saplings. Students are happy to plant the trees and to maintain them.

The students point out that the trees planted by them, would grow into large trees in future, and they would give shelter to many birds, various living organisms and contribute to reduce global warming and climate change. It may be pointed out here that the school campus is a house of many birds, insects, butterflies and reptiles, due to the prevalence of many trees. Students have planned to plant more trees in the next year also.

【India】Challenge under the harsh conditions

Girls planting trees

Nangli is a poor village where nearly 60% of about 5,000 residents are engaged in agriculture and the rest going out to work in the near-by cities. The majority of the people there don’t finish compulsory education, and this trend is remarkable particularly among the women.

 

 After having observed the situation in the village, Mr. Habinda Singh launched a slogan: “give education to this village”, and started the school with 5 students in 2005. It was a big challenge also for the OISCA staff to carry out the Children’s Forest Program in such a place. At first, the school started with tree planting. But there was not enough space in the school, and so, consulted with the village, and it was agreed to plant trees in the park adjacent to the school.

 

The school intends to plant about 100 trees each every year. As for other activities, the school staged theater plays with the theme of environmental problem in the village plaza. Although the plays were staged without any notice, many village people came over to watch the performance. The children are feeling highly rewarded because even if many villagers are illiterate, they can still learn something about environmental problems.
