Tree Plantation at Shivanahalli
As part of Environment month celebration at KPIT, in the year 2015 we visited Ramakrishna Mission Campus, Shivanahalli to enrich the forest green cover and biodiversity in the Bannerughatta National Park area. With the advent of industrialization, IT explosion and ever growing population, Bangalore has already started losing its tag as the Garden city. Ramakrishna Mission, Shivanahalli, have embarked upon a gigantic task of enriching the environment by planting a variety of forest species of plants from Western Ghats and other forest region. Already 150+ acres of land has been converted to pure forest which stands as the evidence. KPIT in association with Youth For Seva has joined hands with Ramakrishna Mission to support this great initiative of increasing the green cover of Bangalore by planting 300 saplings wherein 50 of our KPIT’es actively participated in this initiative.
Afforestation at Nelamangala
In the month of August, KPIT Bangalore stepped into another major initiative in the focus area of environment. KPIT in association with Youth For Seva successfully completed the launch of Afforestation at Nelamangala event on 22nd August 2015. As part of afforestation initiative at Nelamangala, 20 of our volunteers actively engaged in planting of 100 saplings along with mulching and weeding of 50 already planted saplings. The project aims to conserve the environment.
