300 saplings distributed to school children in Viveknagar, Bangalore
· In association with N A Haris Foundation, give 500 school children school kits including bags, books and stationery
Bangalore, 19th June 2017: The Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress Committee (KPYCC) celebrated the 47th birthday of the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in a very unique and responsible way. The youth congress members under the leadership of newly elected state youth congress president, Basanagouda Badarli distributed 300 saplings at the Sevabharat Trust Govt. Kannada Tamil Telugu Hr Pry School at Vivek Nagar. The youth congress members encouraged the chidren to treat these saplings / plants as a member of their family and take good care of it. The youth also distributed 500 school kits to children encouraging them to study harder and achieve their goals in life.
Speaking on the occasion, Mohammed Haris Nalapad, The General Secretary of KYC Bangalore and director of the N A Haris Foundation said, “The idea of giving a sapling to each kid is to give them an opportunity to connect with the environment. When the kid begins to nurture the plant, he / she will grow an attachment with it and realize the importance of conserving the environment. We need to build that bonding between children and the environment right from the start to ensure that they understand the importance of afforestation”
“Education and Environment Conservation is the message to the youth and the children and this is how we plan to celebrate the birthday of our leader” He added.
Commenting on the occasion, Basanagouda Badarli said “While the Youth Congress has always supported and encouraged children to study, we feel there is also a pressing need to conserve our environment. Our cities and villages have a high rate of deforestation and there is a need to conserve the environment. We decided to give these children a new friend, a plant, which they can nurture and take care as their own. If all schools across the state can take up such an initiative then we will have a much healthier and happier place to live”
The Youth Congress across the state of Karnataka celebrated the birthday of their leader and congress party vice president – Rahul Gandhi. Education and environment are the 2 issues that the state youth congress leaders have identified to support as an immediate cause.
State youth congress leaders – Manju, Harsha gowda, Lovith, V Harsha and Manju R were present
