Innovate with Waste Project

Innovate with Waste Project

As the world races to stop climate change, trees are receiving more attention for the role they play in cooling the climate – and for good reason! Trees absorb and store massive amounts of carbon, and unlike other carbon removal methods they don’t require expensive technology. Research indicates that natural climate solutions, such as forest conservation and restoration, can provide over one-third of the climate mitigation needed in the next decade to meet the Paris Agreement targets.

The Plant a tree project is an advocacy outreach in a community targeted at educating Primary, Secondary School and undergraduate Students on the impact of climate change and how young people can help combat global warming, using a nature-based solution. Then encourage the students in the community to Plant-A-Tree monthly for 12 months

Clean Up Project

Clean Up Project

Poorly managed wastes have several effects and impacts on human and animal health, economic development, and social impact. Waste dumps are prime breeding sites for communicable disease vectors such as rodents, mosquitoes, and houseflies. These vectors tend to exacerbate the prevalence of food, water, and waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and malaria, among others. 

The clean-up project is designed to organise community members to clean up their environment or public space that has evolved to become an eyesore, i.e. public waste sites, dirty gutters, etc.

Earn from Waste Project

Earn from Waste Project

According to a World Bank Urban Development Series report, Africa produces just about 70 million tons of waste every year. With its rapid urbanization and growing economies, waste production in Africa will exceed 160 million tons by the year 2025. Waste is a problem because it causes pollution, disease, and environmental crisis when it’s not properly disposed of. The good news is most of the waste produced in Africa can be recycled and reused to create new products. Sadly, only about 10 per cent of the waste generated every day in Africa is collected, and the rest usually ends up in illegal dumpsites, gutters, and drainage in Africa’s cities. 

Earn from waste is targeted at educating community members on how to earn from recycling waste.
