Awareness Program:

  This Awareness programs will be conducted mainly to the Students community in schools and also to some interested Public's. This program will raise the Spark in their mind, about their life style and need for Sparrows.

  Students from various schools are brought together to view the photos and explanations will be given. This also provides the platform to the students to exhibit their photos.

Organizing Rally:

  Rally will help you create a strong campaign that will increase community awareness on Sparrow Conservation.
  This event is targeting a member near to the schools where the nominal sparrow counts are in and around. It makes the most sense to hold your rally in near to their school.
  Rallies are often held during working hours of any important conservation days, when there is a best chance of getting media and the attention of Peoples.
  In the rally, during the time when day to turn out the most people, Speech will be given by guest invitees about sparrow conservation.

Establishing Sparrow Sanctuary:

  Establishing a sanctuary for sparrows in your schools has many benefits. Birding gives us a chance to experience nature in a world that has become far too crowded and see it up close on our own school. Watching the antics of the sparrows and other songbirds has a calming effect and may help to relieve stress.
  Attracting beautiful sparrow to your yard isn’t as hard as you might think. If you simply provide the things they need, there is a very good chance they will quickly find their way to school. In this program, you’ll learn some simple ideas for turning your backyard into a Sparrow habitat.
  Sparrow Sanctuary is educational, for children and adults. The whole school can get involved, providing an ecological learning opportunity that is hard to experience when birds are dispersed throughout the schools and fields.

Inaugurating Sparrow Clubs:

  Sparrow clubs in schools will encourage students to get involved in meaningful environmental projects and events. It's a platform for students to reach out to their parents and neighbours in order to influence and engage them in environmental behaviour. It will allow students to go beyond the boundaries of a syllabus or curriculum to investigate environmental concepts and behaviour.
  Every school's Sparrow Club could be coordinated by any inspired instructor at the school and a group of inspired students who will be supported by a KOODUGAL coordinator in learning about the environment and taking action to better their immediate surroundings. They will also offer a fantastic opportunity to help students raise awareness, develop habits, and engage in real-world experiences in ways that the classroom and curriculum will not afford. The sparrow Club could be coordinated by any inspired instructor at the school.
