The Tree Planting Man Gets To Work in Ninoshka Dias' Story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge

Ninoshka Dias' story reminded us of the true story of Jadav “Molai” Payeng (Don't know about him? Take a look at Ninoshka's story and then read about a real life story here). Once our story platform launches, we hope that simple and essential narratives like Nonoshka's act as resources for teachers and parents to talk about conservation and the environment. 


I have thoroughly enjoyed the #6FrameStoryChallenge. It was a fun challenge. Before I saw the table with the selected words, I'd already had a story in mind. After having read the entire collection of words, I was overjoyed to see that some of the words actually matched the story I had in mind. This was very exciting. I only wish I'd come across it sooner and also had more time to improvise the submitted frames as well as work on a few more stories.
