Their Climate Action Challenge Experience
What did you accomplish?
As a team, we volunteered and managed to dig a pit at lighthouse primary school. We dumped all solid wastes, including food peelings, fruits, spices peelings, and many others. We were able to connect with youths in technology Uganda as well as all surrounding communities and schools.
Our memorable story is that were able to connect with the world at large and also did a partnership with Youth Time Banking and youths in technology.
Visited 3 homesteads
We paved way for youth on how they can generate income out of planting
Collected wastes like bottles where we were able to make sculptures
Our next step is that were are spreading our project hence all communities and schools have started to adopt hence income is generated hence street children and youth are minimized.
