Anang Christy Ijang – From Trash to Cash
“From Trash to Cash” Lomanij Paper Bag Project seeks to train and empower individuals living with disability in Kumba with skills in the production of eco friendly paper bags. These individuals will learn business management and leadership for the environment to set up the LOMANIJ paper bag enterprise over a period of 6 months.
