On behalf of the beneficiaries and stakeholders of our reforestation project in Northern Philippines, we would like to convey our deepest gratitude to the Global Giving donors for your kindness and generosity. 

Our project is aligned with the Expanded National Greening Program of the Philippine government to rehabilitate 7.1 million hectares of denuded forest lands by 2028. The reforestation site is part of the 50-hectare degraded land awarded by the government, which is located in Lagangilang, Abra. Initially, the locals were hesitant to be part of the reforestation project because of the unencouraging results of the previous reforestation efforts of other organizations. However, as we organized environmental related training and workshops involving the locals, they gradually understood our mission.

This year, we have planted more than 4,000 local species of trees and fruit-bearing trees over an area of 6 hectares. Access to the site is difficult, especially in the rainy season. Due to poor road conditions, we have to use a 4-wheel drive truck to haul the seedlings from the nursery. The locals have to cross a river to reach the project site. Despite all these obstacles, we are committed to have a high survival rate of the planted seedlings.

As we mainstream the nature-based solution using the ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction approach, with your support, we aim to strengthen the resilience and reduce the vulnerability of the locals from disasters.
