" Commitment and Intentionality are my core values, and being a Millennium Fellow is a rare opportunity to show that I could put this to use. There is a declining sense of cleanliness in our communities, and I believe that it all starts at the formative stages of a child's development, so if we can tell them the right thing from these early years, it would not be a problem in the future. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Trash The Trash Initiative
Trash The Trash involves educating primary school children about the importance of proper waste disposal. In my community, improper waste disposal has caused a lot of flooding and littering, and I believe it starts with the most basic thing: Do not drop waste on the floor. As simple as that is, the opposite seems to be the culture now. And since we believe that children are our future, to have a waste safe environment in the future, these primary school children in their formative years would be instrumental. Even for now, because they would soon be the ones handling the wastes in their respective households. And more, simply, it will make them cleaner.
