Summary

Help All As One purchase a Motorcycle "Trash Trolley" for its Children's Center in Sierra Leone! This vehicle will allow the Center's staff to dispose of garbage properly and create a safer, more sanitary environment for the orphaned children who live at our center and the other families living in the neighborhood. Help keep the whole community safe from preventable disease and pollution!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Sierra Leone, like many other developing countries has no regular garbage pick-up system. Often unable to dispose of waste in a safe way, many Sierra Leoneans are forced to dump garbage in public areas, creating a major public health issue. At All As One, we are committed to keeping our kids safe and teaching them the value of sanitation through proper waste disposal. However, our current system is incredibly expensive. All As One pays over $500 (US) a month to take out the trash!

How will this project solve this problem?

With a Motorcycle Trash Trolley, we would no longer have to rely on expensive private waste disposal services -- we would be able to do the job ourselves! We would save over $400 a month and be able to use the savings to help more kids at our Center. The Trolley will also help us increase safety by enclosing waste in cans, diminishing the ability of disease-carrying mosquitoes and flies to procreate.

Potential Long Term Impact

During it's estimated 20 years in operation, a Motorcycle Trash Trolley would help All As One provide a safe home environment for over 1,000 orphaned and destitute children, and help thousands more in their community. A Motorcycle Trash Trolley will also help All As One teach it's kids the value of proper sanitation and environmental awareness.
