No. of participants: 160 citizens, 20 workers

  • Positive Facts:
  • Having holes dug early cut the time by 70% for the entire project
  • Having a larger no. of people educated more persons than ever before
  • Using of megaphone allowed better communication among larger crowed
  • Gathering larger no. organisations allowed great funding and logistical support for the event
  • The entire project cost was collected by donations directly sent for the project

Negative Facts:

  • Avoid getting uprooted plants. They should be in bags. 200 saplings of Mahogany were received FOC as such. These saplings are weak.
  • Have better hydration along the supply chain
  • Avoid hand to hand passing much as possible
  • Have customised boxes to hold about  5 plants to pass plants along a line. Larger boxes allow saplings to fall and when too many plants are there they will fall.
  • When working with volunteers, discipline is an issue as people become tired. So it is better to invest in labouers than large i.e. > 50 citizens.
