A school in Chhattisgarh’s Bargai village named ‘Shiksha Kuteer’, comes up with an unique and a commendable initiative where the school asks parents to plant trees in lieu of school fee of their wards. The school provides primary education to its students on a meager payment of planting trees as fee.

A teacher was quoted by ANI as saying, at least 35 students between the age group of four to five are studying in this school and instead of asking for fees, the school has asked the parents to plant trees.
The school has received an overwhelming response from the villagers and are appreciating the move where the guardians need to plant a sapling each and personally care for it. People are also glad that their children are getting quality English medium education at the same time. In case a plant dies, the parents are required to plant another one in its place. At least 700 saplings have been planted across the village over the last year, as per the reports of Bihar Prabha.
