The Project was inaugurated at the Anuradhapura Oyamaduwa Maha Kasyapa Vidyalaya under the patronage of the Eye Care Optometric Association's Founder, Eye Care Specialist Naresh Pradhan.

Over 2,500 Mango, Madhan, Karandha, Kumbuk and Tamarind among others were handed over to the Mahawilachchiya Divisional Education Director to plant at 16 schools in the division at the inauguration.
