Millennium Fellowship Project: Education to Traders
The project is on educating traders on the importance of cleanliness. This is a wanting thing because many traders in my local market are faced with water borne diseases which have been a menace.
My team and I have had some few sessions on the importance with the traders, they also told us on how they dispose their waste and assured us they will encourage cleanliness for business is their source of livelihood.
