Origin of TREE

A short history

TREE is the continuation of a movement formed in 2002 December. It came in to shape as a unity of the villagers(an extented neighbour hood co- operation), a chain of joined hands for some social causes.Many hectars of muck dumped land acquired for canal and its tunnel construction had been let as waste lands after the construction of canal (the canal is not fully commissioned yet) for more than a decade at that time.Those areas were converted into thickets and many antisocial elements like sex rackets, thieves etc. found their camps there. The canal and canal surroundings where turned to be waste dumping yards. The villagers were forced to unite to drive away this dark forces. They united with the support and initiative of Pandappilly National Library (est. 1947) volunteers and an independent citizens arts, sports and cultural team was organized and registered in the name ‘Nattuvettam – Gramasakyam.’(Direct translation of ‘Nattuvettam ‘ is country light. But it is an idiom for the little light left after the dusk for some time and also a shadow of sunlight just before the dawn. ‘Gramasakyam’ is neighbour hood unity of villagers for some common aims).
