Environmental Day

On the occasion of the Environment Day, 5th June, we visited the Girls Observation Home, at Nana Peth, Pune. The home caters around 100 girls. We had planned an activity of poster making, for which we carried large chart papers and boxes of crayons.

After an initial introduction and talk on what the environment is and why it is necessary to protect it, the girls where divided into groups of approximately 5 each, and given a topic to make the poster on. Subject line for the posters were, recycling the waste, saving water, saving electricity, saving fuel etc. All the posters come up really well.

Thus in the time period of about an hour, the 12 groups made posters with various awareness messages. These posters then collected,are to be displayed in the class later, so that everyone gets a chance to see what the others worked on and the message they were to spread.

After that, we took the older girls down in groups to plant the saplings that we had carried with us. We started the planting activity by the hands of Mrs. Sapkal, who is the chairman of Child welfare Committee Pune.  The girls especially enjoyed this activity as all the plants where flowering and had lovely smelling plants like mogra and zui, which they already knew of. Two of CSA volunteer helped conduct this activity.

As a participatory gift, we gave all the girls hair clips, and also distributed sweets to conclude the day. Thus through this small activity we ensure that the kids learn something as well as have fun. Many thanks to the donors like you who are helping us to carry out such fruitful activity.
