What is TREE? TREE project is specially designed and crafted for school and college students, in year 2007, SAFE launched project TREE, Teen Require Environmental Education in local schools and colleges. The student's feedback report revealed that they are tired of reading environment books and now they seek an opportunity to make some practical contribution to environment. This project has successfully created great scope for students to participate in the actual field activities bringing them close to the community. This has effectively initiated learning by doing in a more recreational way.
