In 2014, a team of 26 from ITE College East Singapore came to Bhakunde for their YEP expedition and served the community through health awareness campaign as well as a tree plantation project.
The team planted an amazing total of 860 seedlings in the community land which will grow up in the next 2-3 years to become big masala or fruit trees. This not only allows the land to be reforested but it also produces fruit and useful products.
They also helped the local orphanage by planting another 300 vegetable seedlings to provide cabbage for the children. Their labour of love touched the hearts of the community children and villagers as well as the orphanage kids.
They also visited a local school to distribute stationary to the children.
