Vietnamese Scouts plant fruit trees for rural households
A Scout group from Pathfinder Scouts Vietnam conducted a tree planting activity for some rural households in Quang Nam and Lam Dong provinces, two mountainous areas in the country late in September 2019.
A total of 68 Scouts and non-Scouts participated in the said activity. It was done with the help of the local government of the provinces and a religious organisation. The team was able to plant a total of 600 Pomelo trees, 50 mangosteen trees and 50 flat-seed durian trees at the Da Nang village, while 90 Pomelo trees, 5 mangosteen trees and 45 flat-seed durian trees were planted in Dhung village. The team also donated a wheelchair to one of the beneficiaries of the project.
To monitor the progress and success of the project, the team committed two local point persons and two local staff to see to it that at least 80% of the fruit trees planted will be visible in 2 years.
