Trees provide us oxygen, hence they are the source of sustenance of our lives. Where there are no trees, life dries up, deserts being a living example of this.
Goseva Parivar organised a drawing competition in May 2020 to highlight the importance of plantation and its impact on lives of farmers. At a macro level, plantation has a huge impact on the cow cattle, the village and the environment, lending a greater significance to this subject.
The competition which was open to all was divided into 5 ages groups, each age group having a provision for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. 50 trees will be planted in the name of 1st prize winner, 25 trees for 2nd prize, 10 trees for 3rd prize and one tree for all other participants. Each sapling costs Rs.50. There is also a provision to take all the winners for a village trip.
