Hey everyone! This is MaryMargaret, and this week I had the pleasure of interviewing Guru Mathivanan from India. Wow! He has a really inspiring story that I’m excited to share with you.

MaryMargaret: Hey Guru! Would you please tell our readers a bit about yourself?

Guru: I am Guru Vishnu Mathivanan,  12 years old studying VII Standard in Edison G Agoram Memorial School, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu, India. I have done an awareness program “Global warming awareness motto” from my age of four.  I have given awareness speech about reasons and effects of global warming and the simple solutions to reduce the same. Also I have donate and plant saplings during my speech.  Till I have covered more than 200,000 students and people and donated more than 50,000 saplings in my community.  I have been honored with many rewards and awards for my greening activities and educating others (environmental education).  I have attended many international conferences and submit my environmental papers.  I went to South Korea on my 10th year (they honored me for environmental activities), and last year I have gone to Malaysia to submit my paper.  My project is a life project to me and I wish to do it till our earth change into green, clean and full of peace. Removing the word poverty is my life aim.

MaryMargaret: Wow! For a kid only at the age of 12, you sure have gone to a lot of places around the world and truly are a life-changer! So, how did you get your program “Global Warming Awareness Motto” started?

Guru: On my first day of schooling our school correspondent issued saplings to new siblings and I asked about it to my parents and they told me that plants are the earth’s lungs, they bring us rain.  Now they are in danger that is why the correspondent gave the saplings to all.  It is everyone’s duty to plant and maintain trees.  So I start to plant.  Nothing is a success one without proper awareness.  So I have decided to give awareness speech along with my plantation work.

MaryMargaret: That’s really neat, I wish I came up with that idea at the age of 12! So could you give a couple more details on your project?

Guru: My project is about explaining global warming and plantation.  Moreover I have explained about recycling. I am helping others, how to improve one’s income by planting short term vegetables, trees in one’s own garden etc.  I have donated orphanage dress, pens, notebooks, snacks etc.  Main project is “Global Warming Awareness Motto” and Tree Plantation and giving Environmental Awareness through Environmental Education.

MaryMargaret: Very inspiring and very different – I love it. How do you spread the word about your project?

Guru: Through my environmental awareness classes, handmade charts, drawings, speech, newspaper cuttings album, ppt. presentation etc.  I am not only telling all the facts but also doing in my day today life.

MaryMargaret: Those are some great ways to raise awareness for your program. So how does you work you do impact your life?

Guru: I have got social recognition for my work.  The peers of my age group also motivated to do this work.  Every small action makes big change one day.  In our area many students follow my words and they also did environmental activities in their area.

MaryMargaret: Agreed! A small action REALLY can make a huge difference. On your profile on the Kids Are Heroes Website, it says you’ve given a lot of speeches to inspire people about your project. How many people have you spoken in front of, and was it nerve-racking for you?

Guru: I have covered 200,000 people in total.  The total number in one public is maximum 5000. In one school 1500 students. In one polytechnic college 1500 students.  I have done my speech from my age of four.  At my fourth year I have covered 500 audience. As long as you have a clear idea about you talk, and speak boldly to explain the problems, you will collect points more about you speak. Face audience boldly and confidently. That’s all.

MaryMargaret: Even I haven’t spoken in front of that many people, and you are 3 years younger than me! Haha. Anyways, knowing that you have donated a lot of saplings to all over the world, how does it make you feel?

Guru: I am feeling very happy to plant and donate saplings because I do something for our mother planet earth to change green.

MaryMargaret: I think if everyone did what you do, we would have a much healthier planet. For my final question, would you ever like to attend Kids Are Heroes Day in the near future?

Guru: Definitely I want to attend Kids Are Heroes Day and I also wish to deliver my awareness speech if you wish.

We would love that! Make sure to check out Guru’s Profile on the Kids Are Heroes Site!

    Choose a soap that will cleanse your body and not just perfume it a little bit.
    Looking beautiful doesn’t have to be hard on your budget or the environment.
    If our body is producing skin cells to repair wrinkles, there would be no problem at
    all, and all wrinkles would be temporary in nature.
