Our plan for in terms of programs is to let the participants to own the activities by giving the responsibilities through leadership roles in the in their schools, that is, every school that we are going to launch our programs, we will come up with environmental clubs and elect club officer. This will ensure continuity of the program even after our cycle is completed.
