Culture is a Basic Need

One Baby One Tree

One Baby One Tree is one of the oldest traditions of Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama - the village NGO. A flower or fruit tree is presented on the birth of a baby in the family. As a result of this simple tradition, every home in the village now has a fruit and flower trees.

The in-charge of the Basic Health Unit keeps an exact record of all babies born in the village and gives the information to the head of the NGO, who then arranges saplings from the nursery to be used in the annual event called One Baby One Tree that is held in the village each year in the BHU.

Dr. Senta Siller – the founder of the project – had conceived and initiated two programs for increasing greenery in the village homes: one for the members of the Women Art Center and the other for the BHU Baby program. In this way, a very special type of vegetation has developed in the village houses. This year also, the program could be implemented with donations and help from volunteers.
