As a part of his on-going initiative to engage the local communities to clean the buffer villages, Kishor conducted 2 cleanliness drives in his home village of Katwal. He engaged 70 volunteers to take part in the drives in which plastic and polythene litter was cleared from the streets.


With temperatures climbing well into the 40s, our educational activities centered on water conservation and providing water for wildlife. We encouraged students to set up birdbaths – setting up pots and vessels filled with water for birds to drink. These activities also provide the children additional opportunities to learn about the wildlife around their village, as we encouraged the students to keep a keen eye on the activities around the birdbaths.
