CHANGE organized an exciting “Green Class” for children aged 9-13 at Saigon International Star School (District 2, HCMC). The children learned about environmental issues, especially plastic pollution due to the over-use of single-use plastics. They were shown videos, pictures that illustrate the causes and consequences of this problem and got to “practice” the solutions through sorting waste and using alternative products. Especially, the children organized their own bakery to raise money and contribute to CHANGE’s fund.
