Funded by the Arkleton Trust in The Gambia, Kartong

  • April 2017
  • Trained 70 people
  • Involved participants from 11 countries
  • 6 amazing days of  talking rubbish!

WasteAid ran a six-day workshop in partnership with the Arkleton Trust on community waste management with 40 participants from The Gambia and 30 more from Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Cameroon and India. We worked with delegates to help plan for better waste management in their communities and delivered practical training, bringing specialist trainers in from across the continent to share skills on composting, making biofuels from organic waste and making paving slabs from film plastic. Finally, WasteAid delivered Masterclasses in business development and community engagement, making sure everyone felt inspired and equipped to make change in their own communities.

WasteAid shares simple waste management know-how with communities in low-income countries.

Our projects help reduce the negative impacts of waste, create jobs, improve health and protect the local and global environment.
