   In cooperation with Phnom Pen Church of Christ, OISCA Cambodia carried out on May 16 and 23, food aid to support 77 local households who are suffering from poverty in livelihood under Corona virus pandemic.

   Since the end of February, the number of people infected by the virus is increasing in Phnom Pen.  The government locked down the city from April 14 through May 5 and restricted movement and activities. Particularly the area seriously infected was designated as red zone, and even after the lockdown, it has been prohibited to go out, hold markets and conduct business activities.

   In the midst of extreme poverty in the lives of people who have lost access to food and income, Mr. Chhourng Sovanna, former OISCA trainee and CFP Manager, started proving food aid. But the activities with the self fund were limited.

   In learning about such efforts, OISCA Nishi-Nippon Training Center solicited donations “for helping former trainees who learned at the Center” and supported Mr. Sovanna’s activity.  In the red zone of Phnom Pen where the movement of people is severely restricted, OISCA Cambodia with the cooperation of government officials, distributed food such as rice and noodles to 77 households.

Sri Lanka CFP supports home study with making and provision of teaching materials

   OISCA Sri Lanka, in order to help children who are unable to carry out their study as they wish due to the prolonged Corona pandemic, is making and providing teaching materials for home study targeting 18 schools participating the Children’s Forest Program (CFP).

   In the country, schools closure and reduction of face-to-face lessons due to the spread of Corona virus infection have had a major impact on projects such as the inability to carry out CFP activities such as tree planting and environment seminars as planned. So they decided to support vegetable cultivation that children can do at home and also to provide assistance in solving the problems facing schools. When conducted a survey on needs at school, it was found out that there is an increasing number of children and students who are worried about delay in learning because they are forced to self-study at home due to frequent school closure and shortened classes and that teachers also have difficulty in teaching and responding.

Workshops held for CFP Leaders in Indonesia

Earlier this year, a series of workshops for leaders of the Children’s Forest Program (CFP) were held in Indonesia as part of the projects supported by the TOTO Water Environment Fund.

In Indonesia, the infection of Corona virus has been spreading, and almost all schools have stopped face-to-face lessons and are conducting remote lessons utilizing internet or groups studies with a small number of children. With fewer opportunities to directly communicate with others, however, there are concerns not only about learning but also about the impact on children’s personality formation.

Children’s Forest Program under the Corona Pandemic 1

  Due to the spread of Corona virus infection, we are now facing a situation that we could not have imagined from our daily life so far. In the activity areas of the Children’s Forest Program (CFP), the impact is great that schools have been closed and restrictions of movement have continued, and there are many areas where we can’t carry out activities.

   In the midst of the transformation of what was previously accepted as “a matter of course” we also had to reassess our past activities due to the Corona pandemic. What can we do for the children and communities working together so far ? While considering the role that is required, we will introduce the newly launched initiatives from each site.
