From last several years the area of Bundelkhand is facing continuous droughts because of very less rainfall every year because of which rural people are living miserable lives especially farmers. June is the month from which Central India starts receiving rainfall and thus it is necessary to conserve this rain water as the villagers of rural India are still dependent on rain water for the whole year. Thus we decided to celebrate World Environment Day & World Oceans Day (which are celebrated on 5th of June & 8th of June respectively every year) by creating awareness among the villagers so as they can utilize forthcoming rainfall. In 7 villages of Babina block we celebrated World Environment Week from 5th to 11th June namely Rajgarh, Khajraha Khurd, Khajara Bujurg, Toonka, Bhandra, Bedora and Khera by making people aware by delivering lectures, demonstrating videos, doing plantations, distributing pamphlets, rallies, etc. In this 7 days event, we planted 700 trees (100 in each village). World Oceans Day was celebrated for 5 days (from 12th to 16th of June) in 5 villages namely Rajgarh, Khajraha Khurd, Toonka, Bhandra and Bedora in the same manner.
On World Yoga Day (21st of June) also, we celebrated a 5 days Yoga Camapign at Prem Nagar, Jhansi from 19th to 23rd of June so as to make people learn to opt for Yoga instead of medicines for a healthy living. Our Yoga trainer trained people for doing various Yoga exercises along with creating awareness on the benefits of Yoga.
As 8th June was the Death Anniversary of our pioneer, Lt. Th. Shiv Shankar Singh Chauhan, we paid our homage and tribute by planting trees, distribution of food and sweets to the poor people.
On 18th June, we gave tribute to Veerangana Maharani Laxmi Bai at Rani Laxmi Bai Park, Jhansi, on the day of the sacrifice of the valorous lady of Jhansi.
On 26th May, We have taken the awareness drive of Organic farming to the village Khajraha Khurd, where farmers are ready to enroll for the methods of growing vegetables and other grains by the method of organic farming. On 23rd May, we have conducted workshop on Vedic Maths at Village Khajraha Khurd, Block Babina, District Jhansi for the students of Pragati Shala there.
On 10th May, We have started our 24th Pragati Shala at Saqlainabad Colony, Jhansi. With the promise to make everyone healthy and with this motive in mind, we have organized a Free Health Check up camp at village Rajgarh, panchayat Simiriya, Block Babina, District Jhansi.
