OUR PROJECTS

In partnership with Green Worms and Solace Foundation, we are focused on the following efforts:

WASTE-PRENEURS

This project sets up a waste collection within a village to support up to 20 women full time sustainable and dignified jobs. Women are provided with the education of the impact of waste pollution, the skills to collect and sort waste safely and appropriately and create recycled material for a secondary market. Each village prevents up to 50 tons of waste from entering landfills and water ways.
