Gilgit: (PR) The boarders of Hashoo Foundation’s Youth Development Center celebrated plantation day on 19th February here in Gilgit. The purpose of the plantation day celebration was bringing awareness among the student to grow more and more plants and trees for the pleasant and safe environment and to combat the environment pollution. Another objective of the event was to add to the beauty of the YDC’s premises.
The boarders/Students selected specific area and prepared soil for plantation. Then each student planted the trees, and watered them.
