The Phoenix Poverty Reduction Association creates awareness on environmental issues via print media to schools. Schools have been conscientized on the benefits of recycling and have been given contact details in order to get involved in the recycling of paper, plastic and glass, thereby reducing our carbon footprint.
In partnership with the Department of Agriculture the PPRA has held workshops with all primary schools in the area. Educators were also workshopped on sustainable living and how to start food gardens. Schools were given gardening tools, fertilizer and seeds to give to indigent learners who good start food gardens in their back yards.
