KARACHI: A Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project of tree plantation was organized on Tuesday here at Schole International Academy today in collaboration with Special Olympics Pakistan and Global Green. The project involved the plantation of saplings at the school by the children of Special Olympics.
With the saplings donated by Global Green, the CSR activity by the newly-launched Schole Academy aimed to encourage the plantation of trees by all institutions, provide a healthy and fun activity for special children and highlight the important role Global Green is playing in providing free saplings to any organization wishing to plant trees.
The event was attended by members of civil society and media. The event kicked off with the special children enjoying themselves while playing in the massive and well-equipped playground of the school.
The tree plantation was done under the careful supervision of Global Green Founder and Chief Organizer Waleed Ansari, Special Olympics Chairperson Ronaq Lakhani and Schole International Academy Principal Abdullah Akhter.
Speaking on the occasion, Akhter said, “By joining hands with these two NGOs, we wish to highlight the pertinence of a clean and green environment in this day and age. We aim to inculcate such practices in our students and create awareness about making our surroundings healthier and pollution free for everyone. It also resonates with the core values of our school: respect, tolerance and inclusion with excellence.”
The tree plantation activity was followed by a fun-filled and enthralling performance by the versatile singer and actor Junii Zeyad, who sung a few songs and captivated the audience with his melodious voice. The performance was followed by sumptuous refreshments and memorable giveaways for those who attended.
