Let’s protect our FURUSATO (hometown) !
Tadsanab Watpaco School is Ayuttaya municipal school. Since the school is located near a river, the school premise is sometimes inundated when there is a large amount of water in the rainy season. Accordingly, the principal and teachers who recognized the need of environmental education including practical guidance at school consulted with OISCA and the activities started.
In tree planting activities, we planted flowering trees and trees which make shade and also to be high quality timbers. Since we started participating in CFP, we are getting results little by little in the past two years. As the children are continuously taking care, the growth of seedlings is good and environmental awareness has been gradually fostered. In practical organic agriculture, we have been able to produce a sufficient amount of vegetables for supplementing school lunch. In carrying out these activities, the children, not only changing environmental awareness, are learning the importance of team work and cooperation. In the future, we aim to develop the activities involving the community people.
