Adani Vidya Mandir Students Pledge to Plant 25,000 Saplings

The students of Adani Vidya Mandir, Bhadreshwar (AVMB), pledged to plant over 25,000 saplings over the next three years during their 12th annual day celebration, ‘Utkarsh’. The event, dedicated to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), saw participation from 600 students who vowed to carry out the plantation drive on school premises and beyond, including coastal areas with mangroves.

The ‘Utkarsh’ event served as a platform for students to creatively express the importance of living in harmony with nature. The students showcased the essence of all 17 SDGs through various mediums, such as working models on environment and water conservation, skits, songs, and poetry. The school’s focus on integrating sensitive and critical lessons, including moral and value education, was evident in the students’ presentations, reflecting their growth as responsible citizens of the country and the world.

The event, meticulously curated by the teachers, sensitised guests about the importance of preserving coastal biodiversity. This is particularly significant for Kutch, a region known for its vibrant traditions and celebrations, but also a fragile ecosystem grappling with the impacts of climate change.

Dr. Priti Adani, Chairperson of Adani Foundation, expressed her pride in the students’ commitment towards the planet. “This pledge from our young students is a testament to their sensitivity and commitment towards our planet. I am proud that our schools are instilling these values in our future leaders,” she said.

Chetan Misan, SDM, Mundra, the guest of honour at the celebrations, was impressed by the students’ performances. “I am spellbound seeing the performances of these children. I congratulate the school on this occasion and hope that it continues to spread the light of knowledge,” he said.

Jugeshinder (‘Robbie’) Singh, CFO of Adani Group, the chief guest of the programme, praised the state-of-the-art facilities at the school and the knowledge displayed by the students on topics typically discussed in higher education, policy roundtables, and corporate chambers. “I am humbled to be here and interact with these young children, who have shown immense promise. I am sure each of them will make great progress in their lives, and, in turn, help their families, communities and our great nation,” he said.

The event was attended by leaders of the Kutch region, members of the fisherfolk community, parents, and other distinguished guests. Under the aegis of the Adani Foundation, AVMB has been providing free education since 2012 to children, often first-generation learners, from socio-economically marginalised communities, especially fisherfolk, in and around Bhadreshwar in the Kutch region of Gujarat.

The school, affiliated to the Gujarat State Education Board (GSEB), offers free schooling from Class 1 to Class 10, covering tuition fee, textbooks, uniforms, and nutritious meals. In 2022, it became the first GSEB-affiliated Gujarati medium school to receive NABET accreditation. Recently, AVMB was recognised for its exceptional contribution to educating underprivileged children and conferred with the “Education Excellence – Empowering India Awards 2024”.
