My project will provide food for the poor and people in need. We will do this by planting many vegetables at a garden plot and picking them daily. After we get enough vegetables we will deliver them to the people who need them.

Our Roots & Shoots group will gather at the Eleanor Klugh Jackson House for Crisis Intervention, a local food pantry, early on a Saturday; one of the busiest days of the week for serving meals. We will plan, prepare, cook and serve food to the hungry. We will also volunteer to bag rice, stock shelves, clean and do anything we can to help those in need and assist the great people who provide the services to those in need all year long.

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...

Our club members will spend a day volunteering at our local food bank.

My project will motivate young people to make a difference voluntarily to make a better world. It will begin by introducing this idea to my closest friends and the to the schools. Then we will reunited groups to help in a specific area to help orphans, homeless, or old age people.

In April we will construct the fences and in May we will plant the gardens. By August and September we expect to have veggies to donate to the food bank. During June and July the kids harvested lettuce and radishes for the food bank. This August the children picked zucchini, carrots, and cucumbers for the food bank. The new fencing is keeping the problematic animals out of the gardens and has helped increased our harvest.

Bring a community together that is so far broken that it may be the only thing to bring them back together. Community members, city council, district members and students/faculty members will develop a much better working relationship while working together for a much larger cause.

We designed greeting cards. They will be printed and sold in our school and in local shops.
