Environmental Education & Incentive Programs

Environment Education Program

Prevention of Uncontrolled Burning Practices Incentive Program

FFC developed an uncontrolled burning education and incentive program for the community. This program encourages local communities to engage us on their burning activities, so that we can better prevent the spread of uncontrolled fires by ensuring that trained firefighters are on site to oversee and monitor the fires. Targets are set to control the number of fires, and when these targets are met, we donate funds to the community for them to use as they deem fit. These funds are normally used to support infrastructure in the area and cultural items for schools. 

Prevent Burning Practice

Water Quality Education

FCC has educated staff and village residents of the importance of water to health and the well-being of people and the environment.

Quality education is one of the UN’s sustainable development goals.  Education enables upward socioeconomic mobility and is a key to escaping poverty. Our commitment to education extends beyond the schools and into the community, where we are training the local population in not just forestry practices, but in the prevention of uncontrolled burning practices, water quality education, cattle farming, crop cultivation, literacy, water usage and sustainable environmental practices.
