World Environment day was observed at many locations. Children participated in many activities and trees were also planted at many places. A brief overview is given below:
Deepalaya Learning Center Sanjay Colony: Children of Sanjay Colony learning centre and the FADA students celebrated World Environment Day on 5th June 2017. The day began at 8am when the students during special assembly spoke about the importance of saving the earth and the kind of problems our earth is facing due to man’s indiscriminate felling of trees, polluting the air, water, soil thereby disturbing the ecological balance. The students spoke about planting more trees, saving water and using cycles as far as possible and even walking.
While there are several days dedicated to women and girls that are observed worldwide there was nothing to break the cultural taboos associated with menstruation. In light of this, a German NGO, “WASH United”, took the initiative of dedicating a day on menstrual health of women, create awareness and initiate a journey from the so-called “impurity” associated with monthly cycles to health management. The initiative that started during 2012, with a small group of people received the support of 270 countries globally and 28th May came to be known as Menstrual health day (MHD). As Deepalaya has been actively working on menstrual health of women, the day was celebrated amongst adolescent girls studying in Tilak Nagar and Khyala vocational training units.
