With the help of ecoBali Recycling we make this possible. This is a matching grant project with the Rotary Club of Misbourne Matins UK.

The first school we started in March/April 2014 is SDN1 Canggu (National Elementary School 1 Canggu). There are 14 teachers with a total student number of 144. Before the programme the school did not have a proper rubbish collection system, they burned all types of rubbish including plastic.

Most important of this project is to implement waste segregation at source as well as install care for a cleaner environment in the school premises. We expect the students to understand a different way to handle and perceive waste, by using the new bins properly and separate rubbish according to categories. We hope the students will dispose waste in a responsible manner. The aim is no more burning of rubbish, and no litter in the school and surrounding areas.

Project leader is Rotarian Terry.
