BIS #6721 Tree Plantation at Ahmednagar

By Ms Chelsea Coutinho for BISMumbai

On 24 July 2022 the youth of St Anne's Parish, under the guidance of Fr Ajay D’Monte and Fr George D’Abreo participated in a tree plantation program in a remote village of Wavrat, Ahmednagar. This place was chosen for tree plantation as it had very few trees and sparse greenery.

The youth were welcomed by the Sarpanch and a few other villagers. The Sarpanch briefed the youth about the village, and the youth pledged to save the environment. Four areas were allocated to carry out tree plantation, where around 100 saplings were planted by the youth group. They thanked the sarpanch and the villagers for their cooperation and for the wonderful experience they had.

The youth expressed their gratitude to the Director of Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra, Fr D’Abreo, and Fr D’Monte, the youth animator, for their guidance and support in making the programme a success.
