Worldwide annually Earth Day is celebrated to demonstrate the support for environmental protection, on 22 April. SETU marked the occasion by conducting a Community mobilization and Environmental Awareness Program on this day.
The venue selected for the green event was Sant Kabir Ashram, Gwalior. The area has too much concrete but lacks greenery.
The community mobilization program started in the morning. The messages on importance of planting trees and maintaining cleaner and greener surroundings were conveyed to the people.
SETU team planted tree saplings in the area and were joined by volunteers that included local inhabitants of the area as well as prominent social activists.
In all, 30 tree saplings were planted in the area. The local people there vowed to take care of the saplings and help them flourish into large trees!
