ಆಗಸ್ಟ್‌ ೨೩ ಮತ್ತು ೨೪, ೨೦೧೯ ಸಂತ ಫ್ರಾನ್ಸಿಸ್‌ ಕ್ಸೇವಿಯರ್‌ ಹುಡುಗಿಯರ ಮಾಧ್ಯಮಿಕ ಶಾಲೆಯು ನಡೆಸಿದ ನಿಸರ್ಗೋತ್ಸವದದಲ್ಲಿ ೨,೬೬,೮೮೬ ಮರಗಳನ್ನು ನೆಡುವ ಸಂಕಲ್ಪ; Ecology Festival at St. Xavier Girls High School on Aug 23 and 24, 2019 generates pledges for planting 2,66,886 trees!


This blog is both in English and Kannada (at the end).

St. Francis Xavier Girls High School hosted an ecological festival at its campus on August 23rd and 24th, 2019, attracting all its students and parents. The Billion Trees and Beyond too was one of the invitees to host a stall, and we took the help of student volunteers of the school to generate pledges for planting 2,66,886 over two days.

With this count, our total tree plantation pledge count now stands at 1,20,67,089 tree plantations so far, the details of which is given in the link below:


Vote of Thanks:

1. Thanks to the management and the Principal of St. Francis Xavier High School for giving an opportunity to conduct this pledge raising at their campus event at free of cost.

2. Thanks to Noor Fathima, the brain behind the event, and also the well noted OTG evangelist of Bengaluru for helping to organize this event, and especially coordinate our participation in this event. We also thank all the OTGians from the OTG communities she has formed, who worked hard for the success of this event with her.

3. This event could not have been covered by us without the precious help from the student volunteers who worked as a team and dedicated their time and energy to make this happen. Special thanks to Gehna Aaisha (9th B), Roshna Masroor (10th B), Shruthi Grace (10th C), Simra Fathima (10th C), Syeda Mariam (10th C), Alina Taskeen (10th C), Falak Kareem (8th B), Huda Raqib (5th A), Maryam Firdous (8th B), Sarah Royan (8th B), Ayna Sujood (10th A), Saarah Abdul (8th B) and numerous other volunteers whose name we could not collect and document.

The stall was too busy on day 1
Young pledgess had discipline and patience to stand in a line and wait for their turn.
We took lunch break in turns

4. Thanks to Usha B R, an OTGian from Basavanagudi and Uttarahalli OTG groups for entering all the pledge data from the note book to the excel spread sheet. This is a very painful work, needs lot of care either not to make a new mistake or correct a mistake already on the note book.

5. Nataraja Upadhya  for sponsoring the Pledge certificates for this event.

6. Thanks to the Ashrama Gardens Urban EverGreen Jungle for supplying 260+ Mexican Sunflower cuttings, which were distributed at our pledge point. These cuttings are tough and become trees in difficult conditions without much care. The YouTube channel related to Ashrama Gardens:  Ashrama Gardens YouTube Channel


Details of the pledge, pledgees and the event photos are given below after the Kannada section.

Thank you all!
