Learning the blessing of the forest and develop a grateful spirit
One of the unique activities in the Malaysian Children’s Forest Program is “building squares of TSUMIKI: Wood blocks”. It is the activity that OISCA has been carrying out utilizing thinning materials for environmental education mainly in Japan. In Malaysia, former trainees utilizing what they have learnt in Japan, is conducting the program to tell children the blessings of the forests and the importance of protecting the forests.
Although Japan and Malaysia are totally different countries, the children are the same in that they cooperate with their friends and create unique works. While the children are crazy about TV or games, many of them do not go out in the recent years. We are promoting to offer opportunities for thinking about the environment in fun.
