Environment Cleaning Day
Mathare is among the largest slums in Kenya.
Here’s Life is a Community Based Organization based in Mathare working with the orphans and widows towards eradication of poverty in the area. In honor of the world Environment Day on June 5th 2019, the organization would like to hold an environment cleaning event in the area.
Mathare is among the largest slums in Kenya. Being a slum, the environment of Mathare is an unclean one with sewage spills in most of the places even shelter places. On the 5th of June, the organization is looking forward to a successful mobilization of the community, students and volunteers in cleaning the area. We will unite community groups, schools, businesses, and local government to carry out activities that address Mathare’s environmental issues.
The following activities shall take place during the event;
- Pick up litter around the area and collect it at one spot for garbage collection
- Distributing of created posters encouraging reducing, re-using and recycling
- Cleaning the water bodies around
- A brief environment conservation talk to the locals
We are calling out to each and every person out there who is not committed on the 7th June of 2019 to kindly come out and help us keep Mathare clean as cleaning the environment is a step closer to achieving the SDGs as a country.
