At an NSS camp organised by Guru Nanak Girls College, Model Town, the NSS volunteers carried out door-to-door campaigning at Gill village. The campaigning was conducted with an objective of spreading awareness about saving house sparrows as well as maintaining a healthy environment. Earthen pots were distributed to the villagers for storing water for birds in summer. Another motive of the camp was also to spread knowledge about various alternatives for traditional fuels which was appreciated by the villagers. The volunteers also organised a plantation drive and raised a slogan, ‘My earth-my duty’. Principal Charanjit Mahal inaugurated the campaign by planting the saplings of fruit trees and shady trees on the college campus. She highlighted the importance of trees for restoring a clean and green environmcnt. The volunteers were encouraged to plant Neem and Sheesham trees. The volunteers were educated about the impact of climate change on earth and global warming.
