Youth Without Borders Ghana Launches Project To Reduce Sanitation Challenges In Local Transport Stations In Kumasi

Youth Without Borders Ghana (YWB Ghana), with support from Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES Ghana), has launched a sanitation project themed: Reducing Insanitary Practices in Local Transport in Greater Kumasi. The project is part of the Youth Take Lead Local Actions on SDG 13 Project being implemented by various youth groups across the country. The project which is being implemented in collaboration with the Ashanti Regional Youth Network over a 3-month period commenced in August. 

The goal of Youth Take Lead project is for young people to take action in reducing the effects of climate change on society and contribute to global actions. Derived from the above goal, the aim of YWB Ghana’s project is to reduce littering at local transport stations and the attitude of throwing waste overboard moving vehicles in urban transport in Ghana.

The project targets in-city transport (trotro). Volunteers will hold dialogue sessions with the drivers to come to terms with the fact that they need to urge passengers to keep their waste in the vehicles to be disposed off upon reaching destination. Afterwards, the volunteers will sit in the trotro and talk to passengers not to throw waste overboard the vehicles, emphasizing that the drivers have been engaged to allow the waste in vehicles. 

As part of the project, stickers bearing inscriptions and images urging passengers to abstain from throwing waste around will be distributed to the transport stations that will be visited.
