At Nizhal, we believe that everyone bears a responsibility for the well being of the natural world. One of the main goals of Nizhal is to promote awareness of trees among the residents of Chennai.

2013-2014

The Palliyil Nizhal Program was initiated with the intention of "Catching Them Young". Various educational programs are underway in a few Corporation schools across the city to sensitize the students.

At the Thiruvanmiyur Chennai School, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Madras East. The whole school has been greened with the planting various shade giving indigenous tree saplings. A kitchen garden has been set up for growing vegetables which are used for the mid day meal scheme. Bio Composting has been initiated for the kitchen waste.  All these activities are primarily carried out by the students. For them it is a hands on learning experience which they will replicate in their neighborhoods.

2011-2012

Nizhal brought out a set of 10 indigenous tree posters in Tamil and English. These colourful and informative posters are an educational tool to spread awareness about the rich heritage of indigenous trees among children.

The English posters can be purchased for a sum of Rs.200 per set from our office. The Tamil posters are distributed free of cost to deserving school.
