Giving Hope to the Future: Recyclespay for 1000 Children

The Recyclespay Educational Project is changing the narrative of children in low-income schools who are unable to attend school due to a lack of funding.

 

The project developed a system in which recyclable waste is exchanged for school fees and other school necessities.

Most vulnerable communities lack a waste management system, they resort to dumping waste in canals or gutters around them.

 

This project has ensured that more children have access to schools, that communities are free of dirt because every recyclable is valued, and that our mission to make environmental sustainability a part of our local communities is being realized.

Coming out of lockdown, it was clear that more action was needed than ever before to address pollution and provide children with access to education. This is due to the economic devastation caused by the covid19 pandemic.

 

In our most recent report (March 2021), we described how the project had been impacted and what we were doing to adapt and stay on top of the situation. We have looked into forming more partnerships within the sector to help us maintain and reach more slum communities.

 

Worsening local economic conditions, particularly inflation of more than 18 percent, have contributed to the increase in fees and school materials. This means that we must put in twice the effort, now more than ever, to support the hundreds of children who rely on the Recyclespay Educational Project to get an education.

 

From our previous report in March 2021, we expanded the project to two additional schools, bringing our total number of school beneficiaries to Nineteen (19). We also recovered a total of 3,653.5kg/ 146,140 individual pieces of recyclables from the environment between April 2021 and June 2021.

This brings our total recyclable count from March 2020 to June 2021 to 12,076.91kg/ 483,076 individual recyclable pieces recovered from the environment to 12,076.91kg/483,076 individual recyclable pieces recovered from the environment.

 

We need your donations, recommendations, and partnerships now more than ever to help us reach more children in vulnerable communities.

Thank you to all of our incredible donors who have helped to change the story of children growing up in low-income neighbourhoods.
