YASD partners with FutureLife-Now! to train schools around Malawi on environmental conservation

As poor waste management and sanitation problems increase in schools, YASD has started training schools in environmental conservation, waste management, and recycling. Through the support from FutureLife-Now! the organisation has trained about 30 students from NGOWE CDSS in Lilongwe on paper recycling, including paper making and tissue making from waste paper. Waste such as newspaper, notebooks and stationary, and other writable papers are often dumped and burnt, polluting the environment, but YASD sees this as an opportunity. Currently, NGOWE CDSS is the only community Day Secondary School in Malawi that recycles and manages waste papers into valuable products.
