Radio Madhuban 90.4 FM celebrated Earth Day on 22nd April 2017 with the community in Abu, Rajasthan. The team produced radio shows and organized outreach events to educate the community about the global challenges faced today and spread awareness about the Sustainable Development Goals.
Radio organized a painting competition for students of classes 1st to 5th at the Government Primary School, Nichlafali Village and for students of classes 6th to 10th at Royal Rajasthan Public School, Abu. 80 students participated in the painting competition and expressed their ideas on topics like ‘Save mother Earth’, Save Electricity, Save Water’, ‘Say no to Waste’, ‘Pollution Control’ etc. through colours and paints. Winners were awarded certificates and plant saplings to plant in their school grounds. The Principal of Govt.
