About this project

   What we do
         We sensitize students at school milieu in Yaoundé Cameroon to clean the environment, creating job opportunities and income as well as educating and training through plastic recycling ideas.

    partners 
         The realization of the plastic waste management project in the schools of Yaoundé is supervised by local community partners AJVC, CODONOR, HYSACAM, NAME recycling, the responsibles and teachers of the target schools (College Sainte Famille), ...
 
   Developed solutions
         With the questionnaire-based survey that was elaborated by the students and some partners during the semester, we were able to understand and better analyze the situation of our target school in relation to the plastic waste issue.
   By creating theoretical (expertise meetings with the partners, direct awareness meetings and training with the students) and practical workshops (use of tools and machines for making flowerpots, brooms, pillows etc.) we will be able to effectively transmit knowledge about plastic waste management . The waste gathering in the school milieu will no longer cause a problem, as the students will learn how to sort and separate organic, electronic, plastic and other types of waste. Moreover, the staff and all the students will benefit from a regularly clean school, which will contribute to a sustainable quality education and will protect against many diseases.

    potential benefits
        This project increases the quality of life not only for the students but also for the surrounding residents by bringing more activities to the place, so we aim to create a sustainable project by selling our recycled products.
