【Myanmar】 Green, Clean and Harvest

The Htan Pin Chaung Post Primary School became a new participant of CFP in 2012 because simply one of the teachers was interested in CFP. At first there were only a dozen of trees on the school grounds covering about 2 hectares. So the students and teachers were able to plant 205 trees, including Azadirachta Indica and Albizia Julibrissin! Also, they picked up plastic garbage, which was casually thrown away at the back of the school, and then created a garbage dumpsite. From them on, everyone regularly used the designated garbage site and, for the first time, the school grounds continued to keep its cleanliness.

In addition to planting trees and organizing waste, children began growing vegetables! In the village, vegetables were not grown before so the children did not know how to grow them. Every day, they went to fetched water from a pond, located about 15 minutes on foot, to water their vegetables. When they could harvest, they were all very excited and proud. They brought the harvests to their home and shared it with their family. The teachers are very delighted to see the children enjoy the activities and education of CFP.
