Why Paryavaran Mitra in Schools?
School is a place where students spend anywhere from 5-8 hours a day, for an average 200 days of a year. In fact, this is where a considerable time of their waking hours is spent. The school time and space provide a wonderful opportunity for not only syllabus related learning, but equally, the development of life-skills through extracurricular and co- curricular activities, and interactions with peers. The school provides a structured opportunity to make every child a change agent. And every child takes back the experiences and learnings from the school to his/her home/community. This way, the Hand Print messages and actions will reach to at least 2 crore households across India
