Me in action

It's no more news that Environment plays a major role in our lives and keeping an healthy environment should be our priorities regardless of our daily activities.

Saturday 29th of August 2020. I and some young agents of change from YOUNG AFRICAN LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE(Rivers State Chapter) had Drainage and Sanitation exercise, We identified this really dirty environment and blocked drainage System in Eleme Market of Rivers state, we turned the place to something more beautiful in less than five(5) hours.   There are needs in our communities and we are to take immediate action in solving those needs.

Indeed the program was a huge success.

Hello Nwankwo,

Those are familiar sight for my homeland too.

Good on you and your team for mobilising work bee for a clean up. I hope that we can with time teach our communities to respect and care for our environment, and engage our leaders in the much ignored task of waste management so that our communities are empowered to look after the environment.

Good job to you and your team.

Wow! This is great service, Nwankwo. Hearty congratulations on the success of the programme. The environment looked really disgusting prior to your intervention. Thank you for all. Taking action is of import, rather than lip service.

Best wishes always,
E. J.

Dear Nwanko,
Taking care of the environment is everyone's business. You did a great job by showing the community that you care for them and the environment by cleaning their drainage system. What did the people living in the community do? Did they participated in the clean-up? It is oftentimes frustrating when inhabitants of the place do not lift a finger to clean their environment. I hope it did not happen there.
Huggs.
