The National Service Scheme active in colleges across Delhi University in association with Helpiez has been conducting tree plantation drives in a number of colleges this month. The NSS society of Hindu College held one on the 17th of September and the event saw participation from students across DU colleges such as Kirori Mal College, Indraprastha College for Women, Kalindi College and Shivaji College. Volunteers were divided into 4 groups and and took turns and worked on each of the front lawns of the college grounds. A similar event was held in Ramjas College in which nearly 200 students actively took part. Helpiez intends on conducting similar events in other colleges across the city including Jawaharlal Nehru University, Netaji Subhash Institite of Technology and Delhi Technological University as well.

An organisation created for the sole purpose of encouraging participation in community service activities among the youth, Helpiez feels that the biggest loophole in the NSS program of Delhi University is the lack of unity across colleges. With the belief that there is more power in unity than division, the organisation intends to use tree plantation as a common platform to bring NSS societies across colleges together who at the moment tend to operate only under the names of their respective colleges. The organisation intends on covering more colleges as it simultaneously attempts to conduct open NSS events in selected areas across the city. Having acquired a plot in Mayur Vihar already, they intend on holding their first open event wherein students from across colleges who have already seen the impact of plantation drives can take part and make a difference.

Although Helpiez has worked with numerous private and government bodies including the Ministry of Environment and the Delhi Parks and Garden Society, they wish to thank the following students without whose support none of this would have been possible: Prachi Sharma (KMC), Monika Bari(IPCW), Chirag Kalra(Ramjas), Aarna(Gargi), Arshad Nihal(Hindu), Shridhar Singh(Hansraj), Neha Balram(Kalindi), Tanya Chadha(Shivaji), Rashmi (IIT-D), Gaurav and Garima (NSIT), Nikhil (DTU) and Gaurav (JNU).
