On 19th of September 2012, MUKTI has distributed few hundreds of coconut saplings among the members of SHG (Self-Help Group) of Nagendrapur GP (Grampanchayet) of Purbasridharpur, Gangarghat, Raidighi, West Bengal. Under an earlier project in collaboration with SIDC (Sunderban Infrastructure Development Corporation), MUKTI was able to create nurseries of different plants at different locations of Sunderban. Now the time has arrived when these plants have been grown enough to be taken care separately and it is needed to distribute among interested villagers for further grown-up. Local BDO (Block Development Officer) of Mathurapur – II of Government of West Bengal has shown his great interest by taking the initiative to distribute the sapling among local villagers of Self-Help Group.
These members of SHG will be awarded under MGNREGA scheme of Government of India for their daily effort for preserving these saplings and transforming them into a big tree in near future.
MUKTI believes the every small step towards increasing the greenness of mother nature has a great impact towards reducing Global Warming and in turn helps saving the World's Heritage site Sunderban. We urge every individual to come forward and help the GO GREEN initiative of MUKTI.
