Such Comments lift up moral of Hariyali Volunteers

Dear All,

Note what Kailas felt after working for few hours with Hariyali

 

I really thankful to my company Hexaware Technologies for given an opportunity to visit Hariyali initiative.

When we reach there four-five Hariyali volunteers were there. They had great dedication for this project. They all are of my grandpa’s age but they were really act as power boosters for us.

Hats off to the spirit of hariali members.”

Hello,

On the weekend post Independence Day, we had large groups participating in our Tree Plantation Drive at our plantation site at “village Bavale-Lenad” on Mumbai-Nasik road.

On Saturday 17th August, we had a group of 15 ladies from ONGC. They came from various locations like Panvel, Bandra etc. They joined a group of 40 children, both girls and boys from various localities of Ulhas Nagar. This group of children was brought by the organization named “ज्योत – बहुउद्देषीय सामाजिक संस्था / Jyot – Bahu Uddeshiy Samajik Sanstha”.

Both these groups, in spite of heavy rain, planted over 70 saplings. The work included carrying the sampling up the hill, digging pits and planting saplings.

Sunday 18th August, saw people from Software Industry joining people from Traditional Industry. Siemens Employees Union on the occasion of completion of 50 years of union formation, came in with 40 nature lovers and joined a group of 20 software and media professionals brought in by Dombivali based NGO “जाणीव – एक सामाजिक चळवळ / Janeev – ek samajik chalval”. This NGO, though comparatively young, does important work in and around Dombivali. Their work includes child education, children library, different cleaning drives, nature conservation activities etc.

Both these groups together, planted over 250 saplings. One group also undertook check dam repair work which will be one of our main activities post monsoon.

Participation in nature conservation activities by people across the cross section of our society is an encouraging signal of growing awareness among people for nature conservation and preservation.

Hope to receive more and more support of such enthusiasts in the future!

FOR A CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!

“For a change Hariyali receives seeds!” 
All these years Hariyali has been distributing seeds amongst people for sowing and making saplings. However, having felt motivated by this simple but very useful activity, many nature-lovers have started collecting, preserving and handing those over to Hariyali for growing saplings and distributing the same amongst potential tree-growers. Volunteers from “Jaanata Raja” an NGO from Mankhurd, Mumbai handed over about five kgs of seeds of Bahava and Tamrin collected by them to Shri Y.B. Bhide, President of Hariyali in the presence of other activists of Hariyali.
