Waste management for flood control
Our interventions in communities affected by indiscriminate disposal of waste is to create a change in their behavior and inspire intrinsic desire towards environmental stewardship through sensitizing and educating the community in Bwaise Parish 3 about the need for proper waste management and the value of waste. This is being done through practical learning sessions and waste collection by households with proper sorting for easy value addition and transformation.
Our communities can now live in an environment where waste is no longer a threat but rather a source of income. Apart from using the briquettes made from dried and charred organic waste for cooking, they also sell the excess in addition to the sale of plastic waste to raise household income.
