 The opportunity to realize the plentiful of diversity

 

The Kimmalaba Elementary School decided to start OISCA’s Children’s Forest Program (CFP) activities in 2008, and now various fruit trees which children planted have grown well in the school ground. In 2017, children planted 100 seedlings mainly native tree species, and continue to care them. Moreover, Children enjoyed studying the importance of caring their surrounding environment. Students tried to handicraft using recycled materials. They got wildly excited about making new products out of garbage.

CFP activities from 2008 created a great school forest.
