Millennium Fellowship Project
Waste to Wealth is aimed at achieving the 3rd (good health and well being ) and 6th ( clean water and sanitation ) sustainable development goal. The project is simply the conversion of pure water sachet into different items (such as shoe polish). This project is cost effective considering that most of the materials are locally sourced. With this project successfully implemented, we hope to convert 80% of waste in our community, created jobs for low income people and improve the health balance in the community.
