Malindi is increasingly oriented towards education in recycling and separate collection: in Muyeye here comes scholarships and environmental initiatives, with a unique project to build part of the school with plastic bottles.
This is the initiative of the Roman non-profit organization "Mondo Solidale", which is presented today at the St. Mathesha Junior School, in one of the poorest districts of Malindi.
The President of the non-profit organization, Rita Leo, together with the Manager of the City of Malindi Silas Ngundo, will award 30 scholarships to young people who have distinguished themselves during the school year and that will allow them to pay for enrollment and attendance for the next one.
Many of them come from destitute families in Muyeye and would have difficulty in continuing their studies without help, given the fact that it must be earned and in this the representative of the City of Malindi also appreciated the initiative that tends to reward those who study. For its part, Mondo Solidale has undertaken to repeat the initiative also for 2020.
But the commitment of the Italian non-profit organization does not end there: in collaboration with local institutions will be launched a pilot project that will lead the school to be the first to officially begin the separate collection and adopt a composting system aimed at the production of fertilizer. In addition, a company in Lazio, Edipro, through its CEO Oliviero Franceschi, will build the missing classrooms to complete the school structure using the technical part of the study of engineer Francesco Pozzana. These bricks are made up in part of plastic bottles, cheap and light but above all able to absorb part of the plastic waste of the neighborhood, collected through the sorting. The classrooms built with bottles will make the school an example and a place to spread the technique for the production of bricks "do-it-yourself".
The coordinator of the Progress Welfare Association of Malindi, Kate Mwikali, who was present at the ceremony, not only applauds the initiative that is part of the spirit of the "Malindi Green and Blue" which, together with the responsible citizens, is being created, month after month, but will soon launch a competition for students of the St.Matesha Junior School on the subject of recycling, evaluating and rewarding the works submitted by the students. All this to raise awareness not only among children but also among families and the entire population of Muyeye.
