In partnership with Navrongo-Bolgatanga Catholic Diocese in Ghana
- August 2016
- Trained 75 people on the importance of better waste management
We worked with the Navrongo-Bolgatanga Catholic Diocese in far northern Ghana, to assess the local solid waste situation and see how we can work with some of the poorest in the region to not only clean up their communities, making them healthier places to live and grow up in, but also create jobs and income at the same time. These learnings, and others, are helping us develop a model of total community waste management, using the income generating opportunities of waste livelihoods.
WasteAid shares simple waste management know-how with communities in low-income countries.
Our projects help reduce the negative impacts of waste, create jobs, improve health and protect the local and global environment.
