Our project will help people who live on the street. What our project will do is help the homeless people look presentable enough to get themselves a job. What we will do is go to the pharmacy and get some everyday essentials that people need. We went to the travel section and as a group we discussed our budget and what we thought was the most essential, we picked out things that we all agreed on. Once we did that we called the closest Salvation Army by us and we donated the blessing bags to them .

Our very first Roots & Shoots program started at the beginning of March. We introduced the Jane Goodall Institute and showed the students a variety of past successful projects from all over the world, and got them excited to start their own project. After two intense mapping sessions, the children were aware of the things they liked and disliked about their village, concerning humans, animals and the environment. After a brainstorming session, we listed the students' concerns for their community and areas they felt needed improvement. This was followed with the children voting and choosing their first project: "A Smoking Free Community". From now on (the end of March) we run a three hour Roots & Shoots class on a weekly basis, open for all kids in Sekola Pulau Perhentian (SKPP). Every week we discuss a different topic, related to smoking. Health issues, the respiration system, air pollution, environmental issues and so on will be the topics of discussion for the upcoming weeks of the project. All of the activities will be a mixture of info sessions, science based experiments and games. The kids are involved in choosing the activities based on issues they feel that are important to their community. A quiz about smoking facts, puzzles of healthy and unhealthy lungs, brainstorm sessions, posters, ashtrays and so on will pass by. We are looking forward to see them run around the village being the 'kids police' in a couple of weeks...

This project is to give the shelter animals some playtime because they get very restless in their cages if they do not have something to play with.What we will do is make toys and then donate them to the humane society and animal shelters.I hope that the animals at the shelters will find warm and caring homes.
