Big Harare clean-up

SEED recently joined with other NGOs, companies, Harare City Council, Ministry of Environment and others in organising a BIG Clean-up of Harare's city centre. We recruited 25 volunteers (+ our 2 staff) to join over 2000 other volunteers armed with brooms, gloves and bins to remove about 3 tonnes of the accumulated waste.

As a lasting benefit, we educated market sellers about the importance of proper hygiene and waste disposal and helped set up waste management committees to monitor busy bus terminus areas. Hopefully this excellent mobilisation of residents, businesses, Council and NGOs will guard against any outbreaks of water-borne diseases this rainy season.
