Greetings from VOICE Trust.

The Nilgiri Hills is a region of mountains, forests and tea plantations located in southern India where the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka all come together and rise to a height of 2,400 meters. The highlands are rolling grasslands with patches of temperate forest known as “shoala”. The Nilgiri Hills receive over 14 feet of rain a year, the second highest rate in India. Over 80 percent of this rain falls during the monsoon season which runs from June to August. On the southern, windward side of the hills the forests are wet and lush. The forests on the northern, leeward side are arid and scrubby.

The main town in the area is Udhagamandalam (Ooty). Sometimes called the "queen of hill stations," it is located at an elevation of at 7,200 feet in the Nilgiri Hills of Madras state and was founded in the early 19th century.Animals seen here among the thickly wooded hills, plateaus and deep valleys, include Asian elephants, tigers, leopards, wild dogs, chital, sambar, barking deer, mouse deer, wild boar, bonnet macaques, common langurs, giant squirrels, flying squirrels, monitor lizards, pythons, crocodiles, Malabar trogons, Malabar grey hornbills, great black woodpeckers, crested hawk eagles, crested serpent eagles, common scops owls, little scops owls, tiny eared owls, parakeets, cuckoo and lots of butterflies.

Western Ghats is a range of gentle green hills and low mountains that run for more than 1,600 kilometers along India’s southwestern coast. The slopes are covered by forests, grasslands, small farms and tea, cardamon, coffee, cashew, pepper and rubber plantations. The average height is 900 meters. The hills and mountains slope steeply to the west and more gradually to the east. The highest peaks range between 1,800 and 2,400 meters. The mountains run parallel to the west coast of India and provide a natural barrier between Kerala and Tamil Nadu and have helped make sure the cultures of these places are separate and distinct. “Ghat” is Hindi word describing a stairways that leads into river used in sacred bathing.

Along with Periyarmaniyamai University and more organisations we distributed vegetable seeds to families in the tribal villages. It was a three day camp and more than 60 students participated. We had culturals, activities, discussions and many more. They shared that children are in need of quality education, sanitation facilities, safe housing to escape from wild animals. We also distributed seeds to families and encouraged the children also to learn about agriculture.

Thank you for all your supports and helping us to reach the unreached.

VOICE Trust is looking for virtual volunteers, if interested please contact . 

Thank you all..!!
