School forest passed down from seniors to junior
Khan Sart Post Middle School is located in the western part of Yezagyo.
Due to be barren land, they cultivate only Tanaka trees used as sunscreen instead of crops. They used to cultivate rice 20years ago, but in recent year, can’t cultivate any crops due to water shortage and unstable climate.
That’s why they started CFP in 2008 to bring back be dry land to be moist again.
The long-term activities are beginning to bear fruit. The trees have grown up bigger and have made the shade. The children are now able to study and play in the shade of trees in the schoolyard and a pleasant wind has begun to blow.
Thanks to the water tank, they can water trees even in the dry season. Consequently, the seedlings are growing steadily without withering. As for other activities, they focus on the separation of garbage. Some students practice it at home with their parents.
The principal U Han Swe said:”Before I didn’t know how to teach students about environment and the separation of garbage. Not only children but also the community people have changed their environmental awareness. I appreciate your support. ” They will have to continue to plant trees for increasing green.
