Despite the burning sun, the kids, together with their parents, worked hard in transporting seedlings, measuring planting space, digging holes, planting and irrigating trees. Even though it was all very new to them, they tried their best and did a good job. The parents said that, “children who live in big cities rarely have opportunities to see deserts, let alone planting trees in a windy, dry and dusty environment. Adventures like this can not only raise children’s environmental awareness, but also teach them to be grateful and conserve the environment they live in.”

Working hard on desertified land 挥汗如雨的植树场景

This is the second year of OJI planting with Shanghai Roots & Shoots’ Million Tree Project and the fourth year of OJI’s tree planting program. Under the guidance and with the support from Roots & Shoots, the OJI team did a wonderful job. Their passion and enthusiasm inspired the tour guide and driver who joined them planting trees. The party secretary of the local village brought cold drinks to say thank-you to every one on the team.

OJI team’s hard work paid off left behind rows and rows of green trees standing firmly on the sandy land. It is everyone’s hope that the trees wil grow into a lush forest in the years to come. Each individual can play a role in protecting the environment.
