Slideshow | Sowing seeds and organizing rallies: Santal children’s awareness building campaign on the importance of tree plantation and water preservation – West Bengal

By mid-June we used to have the rainy season and the cultivation would be over by this time in our state. Our main crop rice cultivation is fully depended on rain water. This change of weather is happening since last few years now and still very few people realize that it is the effect of the climate change. We hope the government realizes the gravity of the situation and gives the issue a priority.

Our RSV school however has started campaigning for awareness building in the surrounding schools and villages through sowing seeds, organizing rallies on the importance of tree plantation and water preservation. Here are some images of the programmes.
