The NSS unit of Al-Ameen College, Edathala distributed seed pens among students on the occasion of World Environment Day (5.6.2018). The seeds kept inside the pens would sprout once they are discarded after use. The pens were made by Palakkad-based Handicrops, an organization that trains physically challenged and equip them with a means of sustenance. The NSS unit plans to distribute pens among all students in the next phase through societies and the students would also be trained to make such pens. The programme was attended by district Panchayath member Aslaf Parekkadan, college principal Prof. M.B. Sasidharan and volunteers Afiya P.M, Rishad, and Rauf among others.
