We aim to teach the children and our community to love and care for our natural environment. Respecting the resources nature provides us. For the past few years, we have done several cleanups activities, since last year we starting teaching at our summer school program how to change daily habits into more eco-friendly habits. This year we are doing more awareness, we have to communicate more about the issues regarding pollution, single-use plastic, and littering.
We teach them habits to guarantee the long life of our natural resources and how to appreciate them. During our summer school, part of our program is the environmental study, and we often organize clean up activities around town. This year the summer school is closed, but the library remains open. Most of our library members joined our new environment program the Eco Warriors.
" We expect this to our town to become a trash-free place.
To involve our community in our activities and especially to teach the young generation, to care, and to protect our natural environment.
We hope with this our activities to make people aware of the need of changing our attitudes and habits in order to save our planet. For the future, we hope to have not only our road cleaner and greener but also our town."
The Eco-Warriors started with a group of 15 kids on World Clean Up Day 2020 (September 19th). Now, we have 10 groups, around 120 people, that take care of the area around their homes to make sure the place is clean. They pick the trash people to throw away on the roads and place them in bags and after they put in front of their home so the Inle Rose Trash Service can pick it up and send it to the landfill.
Every year the Hand to Hand Charity Myanmar organized activities to raise awareness about the environment. In 2019 we had the chance to participate in the World Environment Day in June led by the volunteer teacher Celine.
