“Tree Plantation Activity was conducted with the partnership of Forest Department, Maharashtra State at Pune Chapter on 28th August, 2018. The volunteers, host families and host students who attended this event were first briefed by the Forest Department Officials on the motive behind the Tree Plantation Initiative led by Forest Department, Maharashtra State and then, the participants planted the trees with great vigor and enthusiasm.

Later, the participants of this community service project also toured the Biodiversity Park which is still under construction. The participants of this community service project felt very excited about this event. They were motivated to conduct such type of community service events with various AFS stakeholders at Chapter Level.”
