The CFP activity implemented at two schools in Tonga, the islands in South Pacific Ocean, in September, 2013.Finau, ex-trainee in OISCA Shikoku  training center and Toni, ex- trainee in OISCA Chubu training center started the activities in this country. Although they’re living in different regions, they started to teach children the importance of benefits of the forests and the meaning of growing plants in their “Furusato,” utilizing what they learned in Japan.

 On the other hand, OISCA senior trainees also make efforts in Mongol which is located in the north of East Asia. The planting activity was implemented for the second time  at the elementary school in Bogotá district and kindergarten in  Erdenetcity in May 12, 2013 observing the country’s “National planting day”. This time, original educational materials for teaching the natural environment and connection of living creatures in Mongol were newly created. These materials were distributed to the school children. Even though the activities in these countries are experimental and small-scale, the youth OISCA have educated are playing role in the activities for the next generation in each of their “Furusato”.

Children are holding the educational materials. They receive instruction of environmental education before the planting activity. (kindergarten in Mongol, Эрдэнэтcity)
