On June 27, 2013, CHANGE (Center of Hands-on Actions and Networking for Growth and Environment), in cooperation with Johnson & Johnson cmpany, organized a trip to Cu Chi, a suburban area of Ho Chi Minh City, in the framework of the Climate camp project in 2013.
Every preparation received enthusiastic and thorough support from volunteers of CHANGE including tools, presents and solar stoves. At 6:30 a.m, every member of CHANGE and JnJ was present at Johnson n Johnson’s headoffice (35 Nguyễn Huệ Street). Everyone was very excited with the work today. After a long journey, our team finally arrived at the People’s Committee of Củ Chi District at 8 a.m and right then we were divided into small groups. In the meantime, numerous of working tools were distributed so that everyone could quickly do their assigned tasks.
Every group performed good team-work in everything: installing solar bottles, clearing clumps, planting trees and giving presents to 5 poor households in town.
At 11 a.m, each member accomplished their work successfully and gathered together at the People’s Committee. It seemed to be the moment that every resident in town expected the most.
Here, Miss Lê Trần Khánh Vy, our Project Manager, showed everyone how to manufacture and use solar stoves by themselves.
Every present ( 500 thousand VND each ), including solar stove, was given to every household.
As the journey was coming to an end, our team had an enjoyable afternoon visiting Cu Chi Clean Vegetable Garden and Dairy Farm.
