From people around the area
“After participating in the plantation drive, I am amazed to see the transformation in the landscape. What was once a barren land is now adorned with lush greenery and thriving trees. It's a testament to the power of collective action and the impact we can make on the environment. I feel proud to have been a part of this initiative.”
