Waste collection and management (Employing Youth)

Waste collection and management

We employ marginalized, Homeless, urban and rural poor youth as waste collectors. Plastics like cement bags, milk packets, sugar sacks, rice sacks, bottles etc are collected from their various communities where they are freely disposed in the environment.

By collecting and selling to us the waste materials enables them to earn a living hence cubbing the rampant unemployment rate among youth in Uganda (approximately 83%).

We have so far employed over 110 youth as waste collectors in various regions of Uganda and our goal is to employ over 2000 by 2024.
