24th July 2016

Green Saviours team travelled to Maratha Mandal High School Kiniye on Belagavi-Chorla Road and conducted their plantation drive for the 17th successive Sunday. About 100 volunteers participated. Students from the school also planted trees. 132 trees were planted. The school has been advised to allocate the trees to groups of students from the school and we have instituted awards for the top three teams in order to ensure survival of the trees. We thank the school management for the invitation. The participatory mode of plantation is ideal for the survival of the trees planted. We are happy to work at sites along the road leading to Goa since it is common belief and a well known fact that the vegetation in the said region plays a major role in ensuring that a good amount of rain makes its way to Belagavi. We thank the Forest Department for providing us saplings and unconditional support. The Deputy Conservator of Forests Mr. Morappannavar has been extremely supportive in our cause. We also wish to thank all the donors who have contributed in the form of funds required for the expenses for the plantation drives. We look forward to more contributions to enable us continue and achieve bigger milestones in our effort. With this plantation drive we have achieved a personal milestone of over 1500 trees and wish to extend a request to people in the region to provide us plantation sites and for joining us.
