Imphal May 7,
Mantripukhri Battalion of 9 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of IGAR (South) organised an excursion for the underprivileged children to Silheipung Ecological Park, Lamlai on 05th May 2019. These children are being supported by Assam Rifles and being provided free education at the Assam Rifles Public School (ARPS) Mantripukhri.
The day long outing was a unique experience for the students wherein they were not only educated about the importance of biodiversity through an awareness lecture but also experienced firsthand the necessity of maintaining green cover. As part of the excursion, various fun games were also organised for the students where they enthusiastically participated. Refreshments and lunch was also catered for.
Children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and conveyed heartfelt gratitude for the efforts of Assam Rifles for undertaking such an initiative and requested for more such informative and entertaining visits in future for benefit and awareness of the students.
