Bandu organized 2 community assistance programmes during the month. On July 21, he organized a programme at Junona to clear the area around a hand pump. Water had spilled over while people drew from the well. This had stagnated, leading to proliferation of mosquitoes and insects. Our team cleared the area, removing scum and organic growth and dug a canal to drain away the water. At Junona, 2 youths from the village joined Bandu in the programme. A similar programme was organized on July 23 at Dewada in which 4 youths joined hands with Bandu.

On July 21, Bandu led a team of 16 school students in cleaning a soak pit on the Adegaon Zilla Parishad Primary School campus. The soak pit was choked with wild growth. Photos below.

On July 23, Bandu organized a programme at Moharli to plant saplings. 15 youths from the village joined Bandu in the programme. A similar programme was organized on July 25 at Chorgaon in which 28 students participated and at Dewada on July 29 in which 17 students took part. A total of 30 saplings were planted in the three programmes.  The saplings included sitaphal, karanj, neem and mango.
