Core Activities


1. Awareness programme to educate people to combat GLOBAL WARMING.
The burning of fossil fuels coal, petrol, diesel, etc and the resulting emission of CO2 to the atmosphere is the major cause for Global warming. We can reduce the CO2 EMISSION with little change in our lifestyle.


2. Cleaning the public places on every Sunday morning at 7.00 am to 8.00 am.
The population of the earth is about 7 billion. If everybody disposes the garbage created by him /her systematically then the pollution can be drastically reduced.


3. Plantation and or maintenance of trees on every Sunday morning at 8.00 am to 9.00 am. One tree in its lifetime can absorb one ton of Carbon.
