Above: On July 2, Bandu organized an anti-plastic programme at the ZP Primary School at Adegaon in which school students cleaned up the main village road of plastic litter and waste. They then cleaned up the school premises. The litter/waste was then buried in pits. Similar programmes were organized on July 5 at Sitarampeth and on July 11 at Chorgaon.

Above: In June, our team joined hands with school teachers to prepare vegetable patches (parsbagh) in school premises. This activity was done to develop interest among students to develop similar parsbagh in their houses, so they can get nutritious vegetables at home. Such vegetables are not usually available in forested regions.
