                GIFT A TREE AND GO GREEN 

                Planting a sapling and caring for it by a child is very significant as the child and the sapling can grow and develop alongside. We at TAFS encourage tree plantation to help children make an emotional connection with the saplings they plant. So the idea is to get the students to play a role in protecting the environment through personal involvement. The milestones of the sapling and the child can be recorded as important events in the family. 

                The students of class III- A received a ‘Mahua’ tree sapling as a gift from their classmate on the occasion of her sister’s birthday. It was a wonderful surprise for everyone and the children took a pledge that they will not only adopt the sapling but care for it and look after it properly. They also will maintain growth and development charts for their plant and become a significant part of its life and see it grow into healthy trees. 

                Trees not only provide oxygen thereby improving the air quality but also help in a great way in conserving water, preserving top soil and supporting wild life. We believe that the experience of planting trees will help children make intelligent decisions about conservation and use of our valuable natural resources as they grow. Also the notion of gifting a sapling to family and friends, on significant and happy occasions has taken deep root in the young minds!
