CITW Namibia celebrates Earth Day at Sesfontein

Earth Day is celebrated to raise awareness about environmental issues and to promote environmental protection – the ideal platform to draw attention to the growing problem of waste pollution in the environment.

This year in Namibia, the celebrations took place in Sesfontein, where the CITW Eco-club from Elias Amxab Combined School along with the Nami-Daman Traditional Authority joined Chief Jeremia, the 75-year-old TA leader who was born in Sesfontein, to explore how he makes his living from recycling tins and bottles from the local dump site.

With the assistance of Wilderness trucks, he collects all the tins, flattens them and sends them to Windhoek, along with empty bottles, for recycling.

This helps the environment and the community by keeping it clean, while at the same time generating an income for Chief Jeremia.
