Chinnaravanadarshana Outreach Aug 17 2016

Another nature camp was implemented in the series of Karnataka Forest Department sponsored “Chiannaravanadarshana”. The schools selected were GHS, Bannimukkodlu and GHS, Alanatha both located on a exquisite location. One lies amidst the confluence of two hills and another on the top of a small hillock. Its a pleasure to select those schools after wandering. Our intention is to provide oppurtunity to such remote and lesser known schools.
The camp was conducted in Bandipur Tiger Re

School kit Distribution

A group of enthusiastic managers from SAP, SDC made up their mind when they won a prize money in the hackathon competition. It was a humble thought they would utilise their prize money towards a novel cause and spending towards education instead of spending on a treat which can be spent in a jiffy.

Healthcare of Forest watchers and their familes of BNP

Forest watchers (PW,PCP,APW) are the backbone of the Forest protection force in our country. They work 24/7 to protect the natural resources near to us.Due to constant exposure to weather and with little attention to their health, many of them are also susceptible to lifestyle diseases and chronic problems. As the call of duty many a times prevents them from tending to themselves, they seldom go to health centres to take care of their health issues. As most of the times they are in the field , they seldom take their family also to clinics.
