In the context of the Integrated Social Housing project of Cité Tôle, a Waste Management Program was initiated to create awareness on waste management in the community and sensitise the inhabitants, irrespective of their age groups, on waste management and the protection of the environment.
Sensitisation workshops were held with a group/core team comprising 12 adults from March to August 2017, and an awareness program was conducted in March 2017, targeting 32 children.
Sensitisation programs on aquaculture and waste management were also conducted in June 2017, targeting 50 youngsters from Cité Tôle and La Chaux. In July 2017, various activities and educational tours were organised for the core team in partnership with seven associations/NGOs to sensitise participants on waste management and environmental protection.
In October 2017, 14 eco bins and three recycling bins for PET bottles were installed in the vicinity of Cité La Chaux and Cité Tôle to enable proper waste management for the inhabitants, following which a survey was carried out in the region.
