TREEathon with a Difference!

Building an inclusive Lake means creating more stakeholders, those who can connect with the Lake and be part in Conservation. TREEathon on 9th June was the witness to this inclusiveness and an attempt to encourage Special needs Children to be involved in Environment related activities. over 35 Children from Samarthanam Trust took part in the Tree Plantation drive at Agara Lake and fully supported by the Volunteers. This event was also funded by the Volunteers of Agara Lake Citizen Group, and Mohan took care of providing lite snacks for children. 

Over 100 Saplings were planted, to increase greenery in the Lake and in Bengaluru city. One of the best way to #BeatAirPollution is to plant more Trees in addition to taking care of our Waste Management! 

'I was very happy to see the enthusiasm and eagerness among the children to plant saplings, hope they keep their Green spirit as they grow up', said Kavitha Reddy, VP ALPMS.
