The activities for the new session began on 23rd September 2012. The events included teaching and gaming activities for children, collection of water samples for pollution testing and a survey for tree plantation drive.
After reaching the village near Valmiki temple at morning 10.30 a.m, three groups were formed. The first group comprising of about ten people went to cover the whole village and collect water samples from the roadside hand pumps to be tested in civil department laboratory for any sort of pollution. The other group with about the same number of people surveyed the full village to identify suitable places for tree plantation and developed the map of the village with the identified places marked on it for reference on the day of tree plantation.
