One Child, One Tree exists to help mitigate climate change through the involvement of children and youth.
It was established by the Sali Family of Hagonoy, Bulacan in January 2017. The organisation’s vision is to attain a greener Hagonoy through growing trees, raising the awareness of people, brokering partnerships, and advocating for environmental protection.
The coastal communities in Hagonoy rely on fishing as their main livelihood. The aim to restore the mangrove forests would mean sustainable livelihood of the people. More importantly, mangroves help in carbon sequestration and therefore help to mitigate climate change.
