The Smiles4Birthdays campaign was inaugurated by Natasha Poonawalla (Chairperson - Villoo Poonawalla Foundation) on the important occasion of Children's Day.
Smiles4Birthdays is an initiative by CFTI to help underprivileged children celebrate their birthday. Smiles4Birthdays will encourage parents to donate a small amount on their own child’s birthday to make the another child's wish come true.
On the occasion of World Environment Day, CFTI along with PNP College & Gram Panchayat of ‘Sahan’ village conducted a tree plantation drive under ‘Rashtriya Seva Yogana’. Mrs.Chitralekha Patil of CFTI donated a sapling to each of the villager.
In a unique exercise every tree planted by the villager was given a name. The villagers took a pledge to take care of the sapling and make sure it grows into a full grown tree. At CFTI we believe that small efforts like these at grassroot level will surely help reverse the damage that industrialisation & global warming has done to the environment.
