A promise to protect trees !!

80 little kids tying tiny rakhis  around Trees!!! Rakhi has a symbolic importance in the Indian way of life. It is a sacred thread which is traditionally tied by a sister on the wrist of her brother with a prayer for his prosperity and happiness. These 80 kids are from a small village school next to a forest (Kanachhinda) in Mayurbhanj district in Odisha marched to the nearby forest and hugged an tied rakhi around the trees and made a promise to protect these trees in future. As an encouragement for this simple yet powerful act Goonj reached school kits to these children.

In a remote village Agrail of Saharsa district of Bihar, the villagers decided to take charge by making a school for their children. These people created a school with a toilet and a clean space for cooking mid-day meal under Goonj’s School to school (S2S) initiative implementation.

Goonj is working rigorously on building a better physical environment in village schools under our School to school (S2S) initiative. Every contribution made to S2S initiative will lead to a more comprehensive development of the school.
