Mission Bhartiyam will be observing ‘Tree For Harmony: 2014’ during 16-21 September. This will be our third year of Tree for Harmony. Earlier it has been observed in the year 2013 and 2012.
TFH is an initiative by Mission Bhartiyam,where we, along with other organizations observe a week for Environment and Peace.This week starts with 16th Sep (Int. Ozone Layer Protection Day) and ends with 21st Sep (Int. Day for Peace).
In our two earlier TFH weeks during last years, we had observed it in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal with the help of organizations there. Many schools and people participated; they showed their concern for Environment and Peace. Paintings, tree plantations, discussions etc were being done. Other major collaborators in previous years were The Catalyst-Pakistan, The Tree Bangladesh, YFN-Nepal, CMS Lucknow, Paryavaran Jagriti Abhiyan New Delhi, UYASD Orrisa, Al nahian School Bangladesh, Gyan Mandir Public School New Delhi, Sai memorial school New Delhi, India Art & Architecture etc.

With the concept of Tree for Harmony, we say that we all must be like a tree. A tree has quality to ‘give’ (oxygen) equally to everyone without any self motive, it has quality to expand its roots like humanity should, it has quality to grow itself together with growth of stems and leaves, like a society or a country or a region for a collective growth.
Now, this year again we will be observing the week with the concept of Tree for Harmony. With this campaign every year, we are trying to build a movement of sensitization of people towards Peace and Environment both and how both is the most important requirement of human being but both are degrading and therefore need protection. We, as a people have every possibility to bring the change and we must be aware and to make others aware that we care our environment, our co existence and the peace of within and outside.
