Godfrey Chemiat, Myanga Community-Based Solid Waste Management Project

Date grant awarded: 07/29/2017

Myanga community-based solid waste management project, managed by Godfrey Chemiat, collects environmentally hazardous solid waste materials including polythene papers, plastics, organic garbage, leaves and tree branches. These materials are taken to community collective dumping site so that they may decompose into organic fertilizer and/or be recycled into valuable handicrafts such as plastic baskets, toys, flower pots, rain harvesters (gutters) and seedling sockets. The primary aim of this project is to improve public health, clean the environment and create job opportunities.
