A storytelling session at Kotturpuram Tree Park

Nizhal, a voluntary organisation working towards conservation of tress, organised a storytelling session for children at Kotturpuram Tree Park recently. During the programme, children learnt about different trees through folktales.

The stories were narrated by Sudha Umashankar, a freelance journalist, writer and social activist. She focuses on issues such as child abuse, malnutrition and women’s rights. According to her, storytelling should be used as a medium to instil moral values. A quiz on the topic ‘Places in Chennai which were named after trees and fruits’ was conducted on the occasion. Later, the children were engaged in collection of neem seeds. Also, Nizhal along with Kri Foundation, conducted treasure hunt game at Kottupuram Tree Park.
