Fridays For Climate | Waste Management in The Gambia

Fridays For Climate | Waste Management in The Gambia

🌱 In Kanifing, The Gambia, women gardeners have been trained to turn organic products into useful materials, compost, and biodegradables.

“People have really seen the value of 'what people call waste' and is not waste as you can value it” said Ingrid Henrys, Project Coordinator for Waste Aid.

Following the successful GCCA+ one-year pilot project, the EU is providing additional funding of €3 million, with the aim of empowering households in Kanifing and improving solid waste collection towards a “Zero Waste” Municipality. 🍃
