SEWAM takes an initiative to afforest a waste catagory patch of land present adjacent to the dividing road of sectors 14,15,16,17 . This particular patch of land plays a key role to decrease pollution in the city as it is in the center point of all the four densely populated sectors.. with the increase in population in these sectors the number of personal vehicles has also increased and here in these sectors one family owns two or more cars so if we calculate and think about the pollution caused especially by these sectors.. It is the maximum after ballabhgarh area in the city of Faridabad. PM 2.5 amounts are too high making the situations very bad for the humans there as well numerous birds,squirrels and homeless monkeys living there. so SEWAM with the partnership of FOREST DEPARTMENT Faridabad would like to take this 1100-1500 sq yard land as a pilot project for urban forest development so that some improvement is there in the air quality as well as in the green cover. On this land, plantation would be done by june end or in the first week of july once the weather gets alright, also selective plantation would be done in this area that is a variety of species would be chosen which shed their leaves in different time of the year making it evergreen land and also it would be having local fruit bearing trees so that homeless stray monkeys and birds like pigeons,hornbills and barbets can feed on them. With the help of HARYANA URBAN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (HUDA) and MCF a tubewell as well as a pump has been established there so that regular watering is there and a small water pond is created where street dogs and other animals can lie down during scorching summer season. The program would be continued too after the plantation day is over, volunteers would be assigned saturday watering duties turnwise so that young kids learn a sense of responsibility along with a feeling of saving the environment. As far as security of the trees is concerned SEWAM ACTIVISTS & RANGE OFFICERS from the forest department would be making regular visits to stop any kind of activity which maybe harmful for the trees and also a tree ambulance would be contacted when needed which is currently being run by NDMC in New Delhi region. Like this SEWAM DPS FARIDABAD would be responsible for making the only and one of its kind a mini hub of wildlife and greenery which people can call '' Faridabad's urban jungle,,'' Team SEWAM,DPS Faridabad met the deputy mayor , Mr. Mammogram Garg in his office to discuss the afforestation project that we all here at SEWAM wish to take up to convert waste lands in and around residential areas of Faridabad into biodiversity hubs. Mr.Manmohan Garg appreciated the effort of the students and promised to support the team in it's endeavors. The afforestation project would be carried out in alliance with People for Animals Trust , Faridabad and the MCF as well as with Forest Department Faridabad. To begin with we would like to start with the waste land adjacent to the crossing juncture of sectors 14,15,16,17. With the increase in population in these sectors the number of personal vehicles has also increased that keep on adding pollutants and harmful radiations in the air. It is in fact most polluted after ballabhgarh area in the city of Faridabad. The team would like to take this 1100-1500 sq yard as a pilot project so that some improvement is brought in the quality of air. Selective plantation would be done in this area so that it remains green throughout the year and provides food and shelter to various species of birds and animals . The volunteers would also look after the maintenance of the area so that our young activists imbibe in themselves a sense of responsibility along with a feeling of saving the environment. As far as safety of the trees is concerned SEWAM activists and range officers from the Forest Department would be making regular visits to stop any kind of activity which maybe harmful for the trees. To sum up SEWAM DPS FARIDABAD would be responsible for making this biodiversity hub in this area of city and make more such areas in future.
