Ganesh's Green Army

World Environment Day movement started more than 40 years ago.  The annual day of action embraces smaller and less-developed nations while tackling even bigger topics: from sustainable consumption to the illegal trade in wildlife.  Since its beginning in 1974, World Environment Day has developed into a global platform for raising awareness and taking action on urgent issues from marine pollution and global warming to sustainable consumption and wildlife crime. Millions of people have taken part over the years, helping drive change in our consumption habits as well as in national and international environmental policy.
This year Ganesh Balaga, a friend of our club, created a "Green Army" in his hometown in India.  Ganesh enlisted his friends and local children to plant trees in the community to help the air quality.  
About Ganesh:
We were fortunate to have met Ganesh in Vizianagaram India during our club's visit to India in Jan 2017.  He is a teacher at a small one room school (MPP Primary School) with 19 students in grades 1 through 5.  Ganesh teaches all 5 of these grades single handedly.  He has been partnering with us to execute a range of projects from planting trees to renovating the school.  Ganesh continues to inspire his students with extracurricular activities to teach them good moral values and involves them in activities to develop as great citizens in the community.
