GLOBAL CELEBRATION OF SERVICE : TREE PLANTING
PMI KERALA CHAPTER

PMI Kerala Chapter joined hands with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and KNR Constructions to plant saplings along a 1.5-kilometer stretch of a median on the Thiruvananthapuram national highway. “Plant the Future” is the chapter’s way to contribute toward the UNSDG priority of “life on land.”

As many as 50 chapter volunteers assembled at the Vellar Junction on the Kovalam national highway on 21 July morning. NHAI had made arrangements for traffic diversion so that volunteers could move freely. A downpour at the start of the sapling planting did not dampen the enthusiasm of volunteers, some of whom had brought their kids along.

Seventy-five volunteers from organizations such as TravelSpoc, Prathidhwani, Technopark, Technopark Today and Star Health & Allied Insurance Co, Flyair Technologies, and Channeliam Group participated in the event. Volunteers from two social organizations — Signature of Nishagandhi and Team Relief — also joined in.

By 12:30 p.m., the volunteers had planted 680 saplings along the 1.5 kilometer stretch.
