One story from our January 2011 Newsletter: Arunachala Children’s Walk
On 10/10/10, Shanti Children Project organized a massive walk consisting of 1,200 children from different schools and organizations, to encourage awareness of climate change and the environment. Participating children were above the age of eleven, they painted their faces and carried banners with environmental slogans that they had written themselves. Along the way, they sung and performed simple skits of environmental protection. One example is of tribal people who were protecting a tree from being cut down by developers. The children showed much enthusiasm when it came to learning about nature, global warming, and the planet. The walk represents a joyful celebration for the children, as it signifies that they are taking a stand for their future, and for the future of our earth.
