It is our responsibility to protect and preserve the environment for leading a better life. Without protecting and preserving the environment, it will be impossible to be sustained. All of us have important roles to play in protecting and preserving the environment. Education is the first step of all. We need to educate our communities, especially our children and kids about protecting and preserving the environment through various ways. In order to educate our communities, children and kids about environmental sustainability, this type of program is required to continue to help them in future needs in protecting and preserving the environment. Stay with us to continue the journey and support Toronto Bangla School to promote Bengali language and heritage in overseas.
