Peter Speech about Trek Polama  10

Trek Polama Blood Camp:

We take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you selfless souls for actively contributing and allotting timing in your regular busy schedule for making this camp a great success. Overall we collected 53 units, which can be and will be used to save more than 150 lives and 25 Volunteers took Pledge for Donate Organs.

All this is possible only by the good will souls who came forward to donate Saturday. Apart from the regular donors there were lots of first time donors/ lady donors who volunteered to donate beyond their inhibitions and comfort levels.

Definitely everyone were contented, cherishing with smile of pride of becoming a Chennai Red Knight of CTC.
 

Ainthinai GYOS:


CTC’s Ainthinai- ஐந்திணை invites everyone to participate in “Grow Your Own Saplings V 2.0”

The main objective is to encourage the volunteers to raise the saplings in their home itself by sowing the seeds, transplanting and raise it for next 6 months.

It’s not just about Planting and Growing Trees… It’s about Giving Birth!

CTC Ainthinai has been involved in Tree Plantation activities from 2012 onward with the help of numerous volunteers support. We used to procure the saplings from Forest Department Nurseries, Private Nurseries and other nurseries which are running by NGOs.

We want to build the relationship with a Saplings and a soil from the saplings birth itself. As the volunteers are involved in this initiative, they could get more insights about the saplings.

1) How to sow a seed?
2) How many days will the seed to germinate?
3) How much amount of water we need to pour?
4) How to transplant a sapling from one cover to other cover?
5) How much manure & soil we need to mix?
6) How many days it take a sapling to raise 5ft?
7) How to save the sapling from the pests?
