A school in Chhattisgarh’s Ambikapur area has come up with a unique initiative. Instead of asking for fees, the school is asking the parents to plant a tree and look after it throughout the year. The initiative was started for the parents who can not afford to pay fees. 

The school called “Shiksha Kuteer” has already covered a part of the barren land in one year. At least 35 students from 4 to 5 years are studying in the school which was started by local businessmen and professionals. The school requires the students’ guardians to plant a sapling each and personally care for it.

The parents have also taken such an initiative in a positive manner, and they are happy because their children are getting quality English medium education by just planting a tree. It has also been made clear that if a plant dies, the parent has to plant another tree in its place. Till now, 700 trees have been planted.

According to International Business Times, most of them are first- or second-generation learners. This improvement has been possible because of not having financial restrictions on education. 

The initiative has been an innovative solution to address the problem of deforestation.


The Logical Indian applauds Shiksha Kuteer’s initiative. We hope more schools take up such initiatives and spread the message of afforestation and a green planet.
