Students receive the paper for recycling

As Vision Africa celebrates it's tenth anniversary this year, one of our key focus areas is making projects sustainable. In fact, the projects we work with have been challenged to raise 30% of their own budget by the end of 2013 through a variety of Income Generating Activities (IGAs).

At our Seed of Hope centre in Nairobi, one of the IGAs is a recycling enterprise called "re:future". The centre collects glass, plastic and paper in large volumes and sells them on to recycling companies. The profits can then be invested in training the students the life skills, business skills and vocational skills they receive at the centre.

We were delighted when GlobalGiving asked if they could use "re:future" to recycle the paper generated from their storytelling project which has been going on in Kenya. Today, we took delivery of the papers which will really help us in our efforts to give disadvantaged girls dignity, hope and opportunity.

THANKS GLOBALGIVING!!!
