With the monsoon setting in across the landscape, our teams have been working to motivate villagers to plant saplings. In July, our Satpuda team organized sapling distribution and planting in both clusters. The details are given in the table above. The saplings were provided free of cost by the Social Forestry wing of the Forest Department. Species distributed and planted included mango, kattal, neem, amla, lemon.

Centre for Entrepreneurship Development of Madhya Pradesh (CEDMAP) regularly organizes livelihood and skill-enhancement training programs at Bhopal. They invited Satpuda Foundation to send candidates from our area of operations to a program to train youths as security guards. We identified 5 youths from the two clusters where we work and sent them to Bhopal for the program, which ran from July 10 to 14. Satpuda Foundation bore part of the expenses for the training program.
