Greening our Lives

02The Telangana Government initiated a state-wide greening program called ‘Telangana ku Haritha Haram’ in 2015. The vision of this flagship program is to increase the green cover in the state from the present 24% to 33%. As part of this, large scale planting activities are planning to be undertaken in road side avenues, institutes, residential areas, municipalities, parks etc.

01Since last year, RDF students have been promoting planting of trees and native plants in their respective villages. Such social activities allow them to engage with issues facing their local communities and also take a problem solving approach. Recently, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sudheer Babu, visited Kalleda School to plant some saplings as part of this program.

Students and staff interacted with the Commissioner to discuss ideas on how to motivate people to be more green and conserving the environment.
