Towards activities spreading

from children to adults

 

   This school which has 162 students is located in Khulna, the third largest city in Bangladesh. It joined CFP in 2016, but until then, the students were not so interested in environmental activities. The teachers, however, felt a sense of crisis over the natural disasters which frequently occurred in the country in recent years and started activities in the hope of minimizing damage even a little.

    This school started CFP activities in 2013 when the CFP coordinator called on. Previously, the school grounds were dreary vacant lots. So, the first thing the coordinator did was to distribute seedlings for tree planting. The children were very excited about the first tree-planting. As with the case of many other schools in Bangladesh, their tin-roofed school buildings get very hot when exposed to the sunlight, and turn into tough environment for the children. They plant seedlings and take care of them, and are anxiously waiting for grown trees to provide shade blocking the sunlight.

 This school has been paticipating CFP activities since 2004. The Principal, who is an advisor of mangrove planting, is very active in carrying out the activities. The main species that the children are planting are mahogany or acacia which can be utilized as lumber. The trees planted around the school buildings and the dormitory are growing big, provide good environment in the form of shade and fresh air, and also are useful for improving school equipment such as tables and chairs for the children.
