Sensitising school children on the occasion by creating awareness on the conservation of water.

The World Water Day marked on the 22nd of March every year, was celebrated on the 21st of March 2018 by ILC-I, by organising a “Walk for Water” by nearly 600 school children from the  Saarthi Primary and Secondary School, Kharadi. The walk began at 7.30 pm and along with the school children and the staff of ILC-I, 35 teachers and the principal of the school walked along the locality, with placards calling for water conservation.

Later the children congregated at their school ground where Col.(Retd.) Shashikant Dalvi ,a very active senior citizen and  a water conservation expert addressed them, and urged the young ones to inculcate the habit of using water judiciously, not just within themselves, but also ensure that their family members and friends do so too.

The principal and the Trustees of the School who were present on the occasion lauded the efforts being made by ILC-I for the protection of the environment, by engaging the voluntary services of older persons to connect with the school children for the cause of the environment.

The programme was supported by Gharda Chemicals Limited.
