This one is for our Mother Earth. In support of the Earth Hour 2013, One Heart for Hope empowers the youth to participate in an activity that will benefit not only the community but the Planet itself. Mangroves are very important to the Eco-system. It serves as a breeding and spawning area for the marine life. It also protects the coastal community as a natural barrier from strong waves and currents. It also prevents silt or soil erosion from reaching the priceless coral reefs. More than 70 volunteers from CTU (Cebu Technological University), members of TEMAPAS (Teguis Mangrove Planters Assn.), LGU (Local Government Unit) and the Camotes residents, participated in this Mangrove-Planting event spearheaded by OHFH scholar, Reil Nudalo. We are proud to have planted 4,600 seedlings the coastal area of North poblacion, San Francisco. We may think that it's not such a big thing considering the humongous problems our planet is facing right now. But in planting the seeds of love, this simple act will reverberate and create a rippling effect that we hope would make a difference and to leave a lasting legacy for sustainable management in future generations. One Planet. One Future. Our Hope.
