During May, we organized 3 voluntary work projects related to water conservation.
On May 20, we organized a programme to build a check dam on a stream around 2 kms from Anjandana village. 12 children from GMS Anjandana joined hands with Umashankar to build the dam. The resultant water body will benefit domestic livestock in the day time and wildlife at nights. Nilgai and monkeys are regularly spotted in the area.

On May 17, we organized a trip to a nursery run by the Forest Department for students of Government Middle School, Matkuli. The trip was part of our programme to make students aware of the need to add to the green cover through plantation programmes. Some of the saplings had come up thanks to students who had given the requisite seeds. Ashfaq used the trip to also conduct a nature trail in which he identified various types of birds and plants for the students. Photos below.
