“If we all can individually change our space, the world would be better for all” – Alex Faith Chinedum.

Alex is a Grassroots Development Champion passionate about making impac and influencing ideas that could bring about positive change in and around his environment.

He is a graduate of Agricultural Economics and Extension Services from the University of Benin, Nigeria. Currently he is working as a Supply Chain professional in Lagos.

The issue of a dirty environment is of particular interest to Alex. He considered the poor waste and drainage system and its effect on the environment and people around him and decided to take action. 

To that effect, he launched a ‘Clean Up’ project in Glorious Estate Badore Ajah, Lagos to rid his environment of pollution and reintroduce a cleaner and hygienic environment safe for habitation.

In the course of the project, I informed the participants of the dangers of not taking care of their environment. Afterwards, we embarked on a cleanup exercise to clean the gutters, gathered waste from the surrounding and disposed of them. 

“Realising how clean and safe the environment had become and how happy the community is with the exercise, I realized that if we all can individually change our space, the world would be better for all.” – Alex Faith Chinedum.

Alex has taken action to contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment in his community.
