A "Recycle Education Centre" in one of the most deprived areas of Malindi, Soweto di Muyeye.
This is the intention of the non-profit organisation Mondo Solidale, which has found the collaboration of us at Malindi Green And Blue to create a model school capable not only of recycling plastic, even using it in bricks to build classrooms and buildings, but above all of teaching how to separate waste so that it can be reused and resold to those who will transform it.
"At the base of this initiative, for which we have chosen a small private school whose local owner has shown great passion for the environment - explains the President of Mondo Solidale Rita Leo - there is help to the entire community of Muyeye that will be educated not only to separate waste collection but also to reuse, with the motto that here can become saving "trash is cash". We are also ready to bring a machine from Italy, in collaboration with Edipro of Rome, to press and transform plastic and other materials.
A project that needs experts to leave, for this reason it was essential the visit of the Director of NEMA for the County of Kilifi Samuel Lopokoit, as well as the presence of technical experts from the Environment and Health and the Administrator of the City, Dadu Chome.
"This can be the pilot project for many other schools in Malindi - explained Kate Mwikali, chairman of the Progress Welfare Association of Malindi and soul of the Malindi Green And Blue movement - it is from the children that we must start to instill a mentality based on respect for the environment, demonstrating that the cleanliness of their habitat is not only health, well-being and hospitality tool, but also a possibility of future employment and gain. They will then explain it to the parents, who will be involved in various projects.
