Making a positive impact in the community
The #littleGreenWarrior program provides innovative learning opportunities for under privileged children on environmental awareness and sustainability.
Amidst the challenging Covid-19 Pandemic, it is vital that Homes cultivate the habits of sustainability and self reliance more than ever. #LGW Projects helps these Homes through designing, building and teaching them how to grow their own food. Essentially, we aspire to educate the children on how to reduce their carbon footprint through composting and tending to their own garden. The benefits are multifold, the children now have a chance to enjoy purposeful play outside daily instead of being cooped up inside all day.
"OSK Garden of Hope' for Rumah Charis is a collective efforts of OSkians from raising funds, sponsorships, growing seedlings, gifting plants and volunteering.

Teamwork makes the Dream work
#LGW2020 Project was completed in just 4 days from 20th-23rd November 2020 amidst challenging weather conditions. The commitment and passion of the Team is awe inspiring as we got creative in how to get things done. It was fun, fulfilling, laced with lots of laughter and joy. We are indeed blessed to have Jeff and Mikhail working seamlessly together in this project.
The Garden of Hope consists of 10 large vegetable beds with trellis, 5 Herb beds, 5 vermi-compositing bins stations, 1 mulch bin, with over 100 fruit trees and scrubs planted, 1 chicken tractor coop complete with a rooster and 2 eggs laying hens, a tent for garden supplies and beautiful gravel walkways .
Learning how to care for the garden is the vital key to the success of the Project.
We have designed the handover through a series of experiential learning activities that's fun and engaging.
It was a memorable experience for all of us as we absorb the children's enthusiasm and insatiable curiosity.
“Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.”
