We are involved in a variety of community projects. We understand the need to involve the community in our business and that of our partners globally to facilitate knowledge transfer of environmental solutions and how they can be implemented.
African village communities are the poorest communities in Africa. These communities are in need of sustainable project development that will generate income for their communities, develop their people and place them on a path to economic empowerment whilst still having regard for their culture and environment.
The program serves to provide an avenue for children from developed countries (Canada) and developing countries (Nigeria) to work together in solving sustainability issues affecting both continents.
Nigeria like most African nations has a waste management problem. This is because most of the waste streams that are being produced and are proving difficult to manage are of western origin. They are innovations of the West and not originally part of the culture/way of life of the African people hence their in ability to successfully manage these wastes. Examples include – Metal cans, plastics, e-waste, paper, tires and so on.
