Gifts and Certificates for all Participating Schools


All participants at the event were gifted with Grow Trees Certificates and Jarul Seeds The Jarul Committee believes that gifting and greeting the winners and guests with Tree Certificates instead of flowers supports a social cause. Trees are planted on public grounds to honour our guests and participating schools. The Grow Tree Organization's vision is to enable the present and future generations to take an active part in nurturing the environment. Planting trees provide employment to tribal folk, improve the ecological balance, thus positively impacting the lives of the flora and the fauna around us.
