【Philippines】Grateful for Trees

Part of one of the trees that were uprooted by Typhoon Pedring (Nesat) in September 2011

The geographical location of the Philippines made it susceptible to typhoons. Facing the Pacific Ocean, the country is visited by an average of 20 typhoons every year creating damage into the economic situation and way of living of the Filipinos. The typhoon Pedring, one of the strongest typhoons that hit the Northern part of the Philippines on the 17th of September 2011 damaged almost the whole province of Isabela including the trees planted under the Children Forest Program in Kapirpirwan Elementary School.

Fortunately, despite the intensity of the typhoon, the school buildings were not severely damaged because the trees acted as natural barriers which absorbed the strong impact of winds and rains brought by typhoons. With this experience, the school management and the students are more determined in doubling their efforts of planting and nurturing trees within the CFP School.

We have received some photos from the first CFP school in Honduras which started the project in November, 2011.

The children mesured themselves with the trees they planted when they started the project. They all look very happy to see the growth of the trees. Some of the trees have already grown much taller than the children. In addition to the tree mesuring activity, the children picked up litter around their school.

He tried several ways of telling people not to do, but nothing worked .So he came with a novel idea of planting a garden there. He watered it at night time after his studies and protected it. Now it is a beautiful sight to travelers along Kannur NH.

SLB Government Higher Secondary School is situated in the heart of the town, which has a high population density of 1106 per sq.km, where green coverage is very low. Due to population pressure in the town, concrete jungles have mushroomed in the town and the outskirts. Unlike other schools, SLB School is blessed with a vast campus area, with space to plant trees and maintain them. To augment the green coverage, the CFP of the school planted saplings. Students are happy to plant the trees and to maintain them.

The students point out that the trees planted by them, would grow into large trees in future, and they would give shelter to many birds, various living organisms and contribute to reduce global warming and climate change. It may be pointed out here that the school campus is a house of many birds, insects, butterflies and reptiles, due to the prevalence of many trees. Students have planned to plant more trees in the next year also.

One primary school in Fiji, chicken rearing and organic farming project has launched since 2010 along with tree-planting activity. The school is located deep in the mountains and becomes isolated by the flood when it rains heavy. Therefore they have to be self-sufficient for their food. However since Fijian is originally a hunting race, so rearing vegetable or livestock is very challenging for them.

In 2011, Waiyara School started chicken rearing and organic farming project in conjunction with tree-planting & growing activity has started since 1999. The school is also in the mountains. The project was started in response to requests from the school teachers.

Tagaqe Village is located on the coast and has been damaged by high tides every year due to the recent climate change. The coast has been damaged by the strong current and trees, such as coconut, have been knocked down. Furthermore, seawater intrudes to the village and causes damages to field crops.

There used to be mangrove forest along the coast which protected villagers lives from the high tides. However people chopped down the trees for firewood and charcoal. As the result, there are few mangrove trees left. The principal of Tagaqe District School felt a sense of crisis over such a situation and asked OISCA for a support to recover the mangrove forest. In 2011, he started Mangrove planting project in cooperation with the village and 1,200 mangrove seedlings were planted by children and villagers.

Village elders said that they could catch a lot of fish close to the coast when there was a mangrove forest. But, now days they have to sail to the offshore to catch fish after decreasing amount of fish near the coast course of cut down mangroves. Villagers want to get back bountiful sea in those days for their children.

【Bangladesh】Dreaming of Harvesting Yummy Mangos

Bagbari Madrasa School is a school that provides primary, secondary and college levels of educations, and there are many children come to this school everyday.

In the premise of the school, there is a voluntary-built and aided orphanage. Children in this orphanage, of course, attend Bagbari Madrasa School. The Children's Forest Program's activities of this school in 2011 were mainly done around this orphanage. The seedlings children picked to plant around the orphanage building were mango trees. This is because that the orphanage is managed relying on voluntary contribution and does not have enough funding and they thought they would be able to earn some money by selling mangoes someday while they can green their school premise.

It will be a long way to harvest mangoes. Children, however, are sure to look after the trees they planted in expectation of harvesting yummy mangoes in the future.

【India】Challenge under the harsh conditions

Girls planting trees

Nangli is a poor village where nearly 60% of about 5,000 residents are engaged in agriculture and the rest going out to work in the near-by cities. The majority of the people there don’t finish compulsory education, and this trend is remarkable particularly among the women.

 

 After having observed the situation in the village, Mr. Habinda Singh launched a slogan: “give education to this village”, and started the school with 5 students in 2005. It was a big challenge also for the OISCA staff to carry out the Children’s Forest Program in such a place. At first, the school started with tree planting. But there was not enough space in the school, and so, consulted with the village, and it was agreed to plant trees in the park adjacent to the school.

 

The school intends to plant about 100 trees each every year. As for other activities, the school staged theater plays with the theme of environmental problem in the village plaza. Although the plays were staged without any notice, many village people came over to watch the performance. The children are feeling highly rewarded because even if many villagers are illiterate, they can still learn something about environmental problems.

【Myanmar】The 10th anniversary of the Children’s Forest Program in Myanmar

High school students who planted trees 10 years ago

Myanmar’s central arid region where the OISCA Training Center is located, is an area with very harsh environment where the annual rainfall is on average 400 millimeters and in the summer season (March-May), the temperature goes up to 45℃.

There are only few tree species that can grow under these severe conditions, and there is no forest and the area is surrounded by sparse shrubs. But the local residents cut down these sparse shrubs to use as firewood for daily cooking and making bricks, and so the trees have been getting decreasing.

 

With a sense of crisis that the environment would further deteriorate if no action were taken, OISCA started out in 2001 the Children’s Forest Program at two primary schools located in the villages adjacent to the Training Center.

The first of these schools was Thet Ywar Primary School. In the first year, the program was faced with many difficulties such as domestic animals eating up young trees, poor soil conditions and the problem of well water unsuitable for irrigation.

 

The experience at that time has been fully utilized in the subsequent activities in other schools. The year 2011 falls on the 10th anniversary of the Children’s Forest Program in Myanmar.
