Project Launch: 12-14-18
The project aims to solve waste management challenges by ending littering through waste entrepreneurship. This will be done by empowering out of school youths in the local community. The project will distribute 50 labeled bins to 30 households and marketplaces as well as 5 schools as a means of collecting already sorted trash for easy recycling. 12 youth will be trained in how to make the bins, learning materials, and crafts. They will then sell these to schools to generate income, creating a sustainable source of revenue for these youth entrepreneurs.
Other youth will also be trained, developing the waste-based materials to organize an art exhibition where people from the community will come to buy the products. A small art shop will be opened in Zingwangwa to sell the products and generate resources to support the youth, paying school fees for 10 needy students every year. Through the project, 240 house households and 5 schools will reduce their effective waste.
