PUMS – Eco Warriors

A Panchayat Union Middle School (PUMS) collaboration endeavour

Nurturing the young generation for a brighter tomorrow

In the breath-taking mountainous region of Nilgiris (Tamil Nadu), The Panchayat Union Middle Schools (PUMS) serve children from remotely located small hamlets.  Usually, home to 20 – 40 students with 1 – 3 teachers these schools are located in ecologically sensitive zones that are under tremendous threat. Unsustainable development practices, degradation of forests & deforestation, unsustainable high volume tourism, intensive farming practices, etc., all threaten this fragile ecosystem.

There is need to create awareness, preserve & protect.

PUMS – Eco-Warriors:  The project has been executed in collaboration with various PUMS across the Nilgiris district in Tamil Nadu and aimed to

  • create awareness about the ecological wealth and significance of the region,
  • nurture a sense of pride, and
  • inculcate a feeling of environmental stewardship

This was accomplished through various workshops, lectures and activities conducted both inside and outside the classroom.
