Coco Beach Waste Management Centre
Ocean Trash to Treasure! Serves as an information point through art installations that reflect the human impact of waste. Coco beach waste management centre are started in 2018 as a centre to host World Clean-up Day in collaboration with Nipe Fagio, Femina Hip and with the support of the Swedish embassy. Our Goal Is to empower vulnerable youth to access alternative livelihoods and generate an income through recycling. We do this by training them in creating crafts and up-cycling trash with the trash they collect from the ocean. The youth in the community of coco beach is facing various social problems. Often the youth are escaping abusive backgrounds. With limited skill and education, it is difficult to earn a livelihood and in turn, some face no other option but prostitution, drug abuse and illness.
