Movement to drive inclusion of children in waste value education and upcycling activities in underserved communities in Nigeria and around Africa.

 On the 27th of February 2021, Joy Chiadika (AdaClimate) led a team to drive waste management, emphasize waste value and recycling education in a marginalised costal community down the coasts of Lagos State, Nigeria.


The pioneer event focused on waste management inclusion in underserved communities through educating young children on the value of waste, upcycling and crafts; including making decorations using "thrown away" items such as tissue rolls, bottle caps and cans with a goal of leaving no one behind in achieving sustainable development.

The children and facilitators had lots of fun painting🎨🖌️, drawing, and playing exciting games to depict recycling and waste sorting.

With a grant support from ShareYourself, the community Kid-Upcycle Project was curated and organised and executed with support from a team of 6 millennials including Ijeoma Ekeoma, Bode Seun, Adams Munnir, Toyosi Babalola, Moyo Hassan, and Raphael.

The Kid-Upcycle Project activity intends to spread across over 10 communities in Lagos, Nigeria by the end of 2021.
