Ratna Rajya Higher Secondary school, located in midst of new and old Baneshwor is changing its chaotic environment with plants planted on beautified tires. The school humming with students all over its complex, also housing many temples within premises was perfect location to show case our initiative, so that public could see and learn values of old tires. This was planned as per proposal submission and earlier site visits so we could increase our reach to greater mass.
This was last chance to showcase our activities of old tire gardening and awareness initiative as men-tees and maiden within Kathmandu valley. We were always trying to do things differently. As we matured as professional in tire gardening, side wise we wanted to train youths form school so we requested four volunteers from school which principal mam accepted graciously. We managed to include four volunteers with equal male and female participation. The major task to include volunteers was to train, nurture and give them hands on learning so they will be able to implement similar concept in other location in future and will help in sustainability of project in school.
The tires were carried from Balaju area to Baneshwor. The team lead for this project was done by Bina Kharel. The space constrained pushed us to reduce tire to twenty five. The event started with as usual by washing of tire, drying them up. In between we went for plants in nearby nursery. As we had restriction of mud so we had to purchase to fill old tire vase.
Once tire were dried, they were painted by team member as well as volunteers. At later hours, the event was attended by Mr. Dipesh Gurung form ECCA Nepal. The event was co-ordinated and effectively handled by all team mates. We really took lead, connected dots and came as single one who were desperately trying to generate values out of waste. On parallel event with tire gardening Subina (Our Team Lead) gave well articulated presentation which was hugely praised by great round of applause. Finally it was a day well spent by all members.
