Let’s grow up with seedlings
The Tugunan Elementary school is a small school, and has 79 students. The school location is very much struggling especially in transportation because of unpaved roadway, so OISCA’s coordinators need to walk 3hours to reach this school. The school decided to start OISCA’s Children’s Forest Program (CFP) activities, because teachers hope to make the opportunities for children to think about the environmental preservation.
In 2017, students planted 200 seeds of Molave
around the school building. Molave is sturdy wood, so it is used constructions
and furniture. Recently, the number of Molave is decreasing in the Philippines,
because people cut down the trees. That day of CFP acitivity, not only students
but also parents and teachers participated to the tree planting activities. One of the teacher said “I was
impressed by students enjoyed planting seedlings. We keep tree maintenance and
think importance of environmental safeguards ”.
