Environment360 is proud to announce that we are one winners chosen for the 2015 UNICEF Reach for Change.
The UNICEF Reach For Change Award is an initiative of the Swiss based orgnization Reach for Change. UNICEF and the European Union partnered with the organization to choose a total of seven social entrepreneurs for their iIMAGINEghana program, which is scheduled to start in June 2015.
Initiatives supported by this program had to focus on children between the ages of 0-18, as well as be focused on health, sanitation or education. Award winners were selected on the criteria of being innovative, sustainable and system changing.
Environment360 was chosen based on its environmental sanitation education programming, which reached nearly 3,000 children in the past year. Environment360 offers a variety of educational tours and programming that teach children better daily waste management habits, illustrates the direct connection between poor environmental sanitation habits and their personal health, as well as teach children a variety of ways to creatively reuse their trash.
The organization plans on using the money to create the first children's environmental center in Ghana, where children can learn better environmental sanitation habits in a comfortable and tailored learning environment.
