In community assistance work, our team organized one programme on July 2 to clean a well at Manegaon. Organic litter had accumulated in the well, blown in by the wind. 5 women and 4 male villagers joined Sampath and Amit in the programme in which they removed the litter and de-silted the well.
Another programme was organized on July 16 to clear the area next to a hand pump at Chapri.
As part of our monsoon activities, our teams across the landscape motivate and organize villagers to collect seeds, prepare saplings and dig pits so that a plantation drive can be launched once the rains set it. Following good rains in July, we helped plant a total of 500 saplings in 4 villages. The species planted included mango, kanji, jamun, sitafal, kanher, bamboo.
On July 21, our team organized an anti-plastic programme at Dhamangaon. 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 Kutwahi on July 25.
On July 29, Global Tiger Day, our team organized a function at Government Middle School, Dhamangaon, to promote awareness about tiger conservation. As part of our programme, we organized a rally in which 58 students walked through the village, chanting slogans for tiger, wildlife and nature conservation. Staff of Middle School and Primary School participated along with the students.
