Guam - The Islandwide Beautification Task Force and Matson Navigation Company have partnered in launching its Adahi I Tano' project.

Adahi I Tano, which means "taking care of the land" in Chamorro, is aimed at offering non-profit organizations recognized by the Government of Guam an opportunity to raise funds while keeping Guam clean. The Hurao Academy was the first non-profit to take part in the project.

IBTF co-chairperson Naoko Shimizu said, "I've always stated that the beauty of Guam doesn't just rest on what we see but it's our culture, our language and our people which I believe is the true beauty of this island 1518 and bringing the people together with our corporate citizens such as Matson and organizing efforts like this, can only be a win-win situation."

The project entails non-profits identifying a location on-island to cleanup and in turn Matson will make a $500 cash contribution to those who successfully complete a cleanup initiative. Matson will also donate the use of container equipment to use for the environmental cleanup. Contact Matson at 475-5975.
