Just joined CFP !
This school has 78 students and is located in Sukabumi, West Java Province. A student who had participated in CFP as a child, became the principal of the school and wanted his school also tackle the activities and joined in 2016. Beforehand, The CFP coordinator conducted a seminar for the principal and teachers on the significance of CFP activities, and then explained to students and their parents the importance and method of environmental conservation.
In the first activity, they planted fruit trees such as Rambutan and Sukun. They are also challenging organic farming on the school field by making organic fertilizers. The school is situated in a village but its students come from big cities such as Jakarta, Bandung, Bogor, etc. Since the students from the cities are usually not exposed to the soil, tree planting and organic farming provide them with valuable opportunities to experience nature. Mr. Muhammad Irpan, school teacher, commented: “Students can acquire life skills through tree planting, organic farming and making compost. This is a great program for promoting their independence.”
