In a remarkable initiative, the JMCFI Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) classes have taken the lead in environmental conservation by engaging in a series of activities to preserve and restore the local ecosystem. On May 20, 2023, students from the BS Accountancy, BS Medical Lab Science Technology, and BS Radiologic Technology programs participated in a coastal clean-up at Matina Aplaya, Davao City, and mangrove tree planting at Riverside, Calinan, and Lasang, Davao City.
At Matina Aplaya, the enthusiastic students rolled up their sleeves and tirelessly worked to clean up the coastline, removing debris and waste materials. Their efforts not only contributed to the preservation of marine life but also highlighted the importance of responsible waste management in coastal areas.
On May 12 and 21, the students ventured to Riverside in Calinan and Lasang in Davao City, where they planted mangrove saplings. By doing so, they bolstered the resilience of the local ecosystem and created habitats for various species, showcasing the vital role of mangroves in coastal protection.
This environmental initiative organized by JMCFI-CWTS empowered students with practical experience in addressing environmental challenges, fostering a sense of responsibility towards the environment, and promoting sustainable practices. By engaging in these initiatives, they uphold JMCFI’s mission and contribute to the broader goal of environmental stewardship and the protection of Davao City’s natural resources.
As the world faces the challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, the JMCFI CWTS classes demonstrate that collective action can bring about positive change in local communities.
