" Our team vision primarily motivates me and it goes thus:
I believe in the greatness of Nigeria and God has inscribed it in my heart from the book of Hosea, I believe in the betterment of things in our country. We, as students would love to contribute to that future from the seemingly little place we are still in (Tertiary Institution). I believe that majority of the leaders & those in public organizations desire healing for our nation and their organizations and we would love to support them from the depth of realization that we are the people to benefit. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: THE LUTH OF OUR DREAMS
The problem is a waste Disposal issue caused by improper disposal practices (like littering, clogging of gutters with refuse, etc) where amount of waste generated daily exceeds the space provided for its collection resulting in the waste overflowing to the road in front of it which is about 5metres from the road.
The incumbent method of waste Disposal in our LUTH community is Open dumping and Landfill which is not environmentally sustainable and culminates a wastage of resources. Our vision goal through our dream for our community is to engage in RECYCLING as a primary method of waste management through the establishment of a RECYCLABLE COLLECTION CENTRE where waste materials that are recyclable are collected.
The activities we do are
—Sensitization of the waste problem
—Establishment of a Recyclable Collection Centre
—Waste auditing across the various sectors of the community.
—Training, seminar discussions on the opportunities that abound with waste.
—Teaching of the children in their school on Recycling.
—Ensuring the provision and use of signposts to communicate proper waste disposal, sdgs, recycling, etc.
—A research study on the Knowledge, Attitude and Practice of Proper waste disposal among students, occupants of staff quarters and vendors in the school and Hospital Premises.
