What We Do?
Environment Awareness Social Service trust works aggressively in creating awareness about environmental issues. In view of wide range of environmental problems faced by southern suburban areas, the committee members of the trust has laid concrete action plans in resolving the issues and generating greater awareness among the public at large.
SST inculcates the habit of tree plantation within the society, thereby focusing on green and clean environment. SST encourages tree plantation in nearby schools, temples, churches and in and around the community. We provide tree-guards for the saplings and also do regular follow-up with the help of the Trustees of the Trust. Below is SST’s contribution towards tree plantation.
