I am a humanitarian that strives for SDGs and gender based violence advocate. Am the project director of Connecting Peace Initiative The importance of Technology can’t be overemphasized as I have always encourage women to venture into technology, recently we celebrated International Day of Women and I had the opportunity to sensitize women on the Importance of Social Media on SDG and steps on Hand washing.
What project are you leading right now:Recycle Plastic
And how does it use or improve technology? In the process of recycling discarded tires and reusing plastics, we are adopting machines in the production of eco-friendly and sustainable home-made furniture’s.
How many people will be impacted by your work? Currently in Nigeria but will go global soon until everyone is involved. The plan is to get people involved through sensitization, engagement and empowerment locally and globally.
What do you need to reach your goal? Fund will be an added advantage in launching the waste recycle marketplace. I have built up a network of individuals globally, though I have more work to do, I need to identify influential changemakers to ensure the successful launching and maintaining my project. I seek for assistance in U.S. or Europe in order to apply for grants. Advice are welcome to create more opportunities to help as many women to earn a living, and reintegrate back to society.
1. We develop pertinent contents, graphic designs,and marketing strategy, for Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn platforms. 2. Create an engaging and informative e-commerce website, highly functional and reliable that will be well as enticing to people passionate about recycling as well as plastic recyclers. The website will educate users on waste reduction, climate actions, manage waste and sustainability.
3. We are to Purchase the best furniture making, sewing /finishing machines for recycling workshop for every recycled product. 4. Sustainable produced bags, center table protector, foams and sourcing tyres, fabrics and/or artisan trainers for the workshop. What successes have you had? I have been able to sensitize about 20 communities but i need to do more.Through advocacy, consistent trainings. We educate the trainers so they can be well equipped to trainer participants. We have also been able to empower over 800 youths on waste management /waste to wealth. Nigeria is rated 6th polluted country globally and 2nd in Africa,I am convinced with this project and efforts made from other recyclers, we will change such narrative.https://www.facebook.com/connectingpeaceinitiativehttps://www.twitter.com/connectpeaceinhttps://www.facebook.com/eleazer.chukwuemeka.5https://www.twitter.com/jnwamsonhttps://www.instagram.com/jnwamsonhttps://www.about.me/emekajohnson.nwankwohttps://www.linkedin.com/mwlite/me
