President : Mr.K.Kaliraj B.Sc agri, B.Ed
“When I started my social work I had five eco friendly clubs we started working part time job in 12 villages with evening training on waste manage, tree plantation and community organization.
Waste managent is the most important part of what we do; we are not concerned about how much we can do but about how much we can enable the community to do.
Our biggest challenge has been working with the community and school students regarding the environmental protection we learn how to help from the people you’re helping. My main message in the work I do is to love the people and to go and share in their lives. Inorder to understand what they are going through. I was a field worker for many years living a very simple life. That was how it started.
Mr.K.Kaliraj has a degree in agricultural sciences from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University. He also has a degree in education.He is now an agricultural teacher at schools in Kovilpatti in Tamil Nadu, in the south of India. These are the people who will make sure the new generation understands in a way adults never could. When they grow up they will not need convincing or persuading, it will be part of their worldview.
Mr.K.Kaliraj is a one-man environmental movement, helping students at padarthapuli primary school, thonukal middle school, pudur high school and vanarapatty higher secondary school. Mr.K.Kaliraj worked with Cletus Babu at scad NGO as a project coordinator agricultural scientist with Indian council of agricultural research in New Delhi and is now organizing and running his own projects.

He organized Green Village Day with the involvement of school children and village leaders. He conducted training on waste management in biodegradable waste and non-biodegradable waste for school children. As the rainy season got underway in Tamil Nadu he organized the planting of 50,000 trees at school and individual students’ homes, supplying 10 trees to each student: this included mango, citrus, banana, guava, azadirata indica (neem), tamarind, papaya and drumstick.
