My first adventure this year involved trekking through volcanic ash and planting Narra seeds to help reforest the Yangil Tribe’s ancestral land which was affected by the Mt. Pinatubo Eruption in 1991.
This catastrophic volcanic eruption destroyed 3,000 hectares of forest and farms, leaving them with a vast expanse of volcanic ash-covered lands and no source of livelihood. The community was then forced to find another source of income to survive—chopping down many of the trees that remained in their lands to make and sell charcoal.

Tribe not only helps the community but also the environment and I am glad to have been a part of it. Because of this experience as well as the stories and testimonials of the people behind this cause, I remain hopeful for humanity and the survival and restoration of our only home.
