More than 100 students, teachers, parents and local government officials of Barangay Careb in Bagabag, Nueva Vizcaya welcomed the arrival of the Japan Energy Chemistry (JEC) on October 11, 2011. Holding both Philippine and Japan flag and drums and xylophone, the students and other welcoming committee lined along the road in front of Careb Elementary School in order to recognize the coming of the Japanese visitors.
JEC, a Union Group with members working in the different companies in Japan has been supporting the Children Forest Program of OISCA. The members of the Union have been visiting the CFP schools to be involved in the actual implementation of the environmental conservation efforts of OISCA.
Other than participating in the tree planting activities, the Union members also joined in the cultural exchange program organized to strengthen the good relationship between the Japanese supporters and local beneficiaries. During the cultural exchange program, the Japanese visitors showed the students the art of folding papers or origami and in return the students sought the help of the visitors in cutting the non-biodegradable plastics to be stuffed in the throw pillow project of the students.
