Environment

KMCT strongly believes that the environment is a significant factor for development.
No efforts for progress are complete if the environment is abused and ignored. We have engaged in several efforts for Tree Plantation and have successfully planted and maintained 6000 trees in the past. The plantation drives have been conducted in schools to encourage children to nurture the environment. KMCT has also organized Cleanliness Camps - keeping in tandom with the national agenda of Swachh Bharat.

Two key initiatives have been planned for 2016 outlined as follows:

  • Tree Plantation Drive - 20 schools have been identified in the Vasai-Palghar area where the tree plantation drive will be conducted. The plan is to provide tree saplings and tree guards and each of these will be monitored and cared for by a group of 2-3 children in the schools, creating a feeling of ownership.
  • KMCT is in talks with the Forest Department to develop a patch of land for a period of three years with trees; nuture and maintain it and following the proper growth handover the land to the Forest Department. This agreement will be a tripartite one - Forest Department, KMCT and the NGO Hariyali that will be in charge of the on-ground plantation of trees and maintenance of the land.
