Working hard despite the harsh environment!
GweGon Middle School is located in the extreme north of Yezagyo.
It takes about 30 minutes from the main road by motor cycle.
The barren land is not easy for growing plants due to lots of rocks.
The school teachers consulted with OISCA for improving environment around the school .OISCA staff advised the teachers to take part in CFP. Then they started CFP activities in 2017.
The first activity was planting teaks. Despite the severe environment, they have taken care of seedlings hard so as not to wither.
Mr. Chieh, a teacher said:” Before starting of the CFP activities, no one could teach the importance of environment. But now, we can learn about environment from OISCA staff with students. It is a wonderful thing.”
4 representatives of students took part in the LOVE FURUSATO work camp in Dec 2017. They introduced to other students what they learnt and are now trying hard as environmental leaders of the school.
From now on, they will plant many more trees and make an opportunity for studying environment.
