One Baby, One Tree and ASEAN Green Power would like to thank the LGU of Sablayan for their support most especially Hon. Walter Marquez for sponsoring the local transportation, hotel accommodation and food as well as Hon. Eduardo Gadiano and the DENR for arranging a free Apo Reef tour. We’d also like to thank our most active volunteer from Mindoro, Mr. Philip Saligumba, who generously gave his time and energy for helping us make this event successful.

The team will return to Mindoro after six (6) months of monitoring the growth of the saplings to distribute health kits and donate computer sets to the beneficiary school.
