Beach Clean-Up plastic collection campaign with our children in paradise

With the motto "Tanzania without plastic is possible - let's make it clean" we cleaned the beach in Dar es Salaam, Mwandge, Tanansania, East Africa in January 2020

 

Education is the key against poverty. Yes, but how? In southern countries such as Tanzania, successful education can be equated with learning by experience and that's how we did it. With the motto "Tanzania without plastic is possible - let's make it clean", we first gave the children lessons on environmental issues, for example its impact on our oceans, how it harms both the sea creatures as well as those on land, and how plastic actually decomposes (or in some cases, doesn't). Also what each individual can do to reduce plastic waste since the children are our future. We rented a "City Bus", bought safety vests with an exclamation mark on them, and then drove to the famous Kipepeo beach. The new manager there allowed us to carry out our beach clean up and afterwards we all received fries and an ice cream. For many of us the ocean is always fascinating.
