Team: Amit Awasthi – Conservation Officer
In community assistance work, our team organized a programme on June 18 to clean a well at Chapri. Organic litter had accumulated in the well, blown in by the wind. 5 women and 7 male villagers joined Sampath and Amit in the programme in which they removed the litter and de-silted the well.
On June 13, our team organized an anti-plastic programme at Batwar. Amit and Sampath spoke to the villagers about the harmful impact of plastic/polythene on the environment and motivated them to remove such litter from the village. The team of villagers and students went around the village, collecting plastic and polythene litter/waste, which were then buried in a pit on the outskirts of the village. A similar anti-plastic programme was organized at Bhagpur on June 27.
