Activity Report

Date(s) of Project: June 22, 2011

Brief Description of Project:

The volunteer, local forest agent, and work partner at the mayor’s office planted a plantation of 800 trees at a local primary school. Every four to six years, the schools can cut down the plantation and sell it as use for furniture or firewood. A new plantation of trees sprouts up in place of the old, without having to replant. This model has worked very well, and can be repeated with little cost.

What Were the Goals/Objectives of This Project?

The goal was to plant 800 acacia trees during the month of June, in order to highlight the importance of planting trees to students and provide a means of income for the school.

Were Those Goals/Objectives Met (please explain)?

Yes, trees were planted and we spoke briefly to students about the importance trees have in our lives.

What Were the Strengths of This Project?

This project was able to procure all materials and help locally. The plantation will replenish itself without having to replant, ensuring that it will last many years. The plantation itself takes little upkeep, all of which the school and parents association will handle together.

What Were the Challenges/Weaknesses of This Project?

There was miscommunication with the school staff in terms of dates and school’s responsibilities. Though we had pre-ordered the seedlings from a nursery, the trees that we bought were not as large or strong as they should’ve been. Procuring them earlier in the month would have helped with this.
