Project Aware Day

Community Beach Clean
Community Beach Clean

Despite the wind and the rain, the people of Mahahual teamed up with the GVI Mexico staff on the 25th September to mark Project Aware Day and remove rubbish from the town’s beaches. As part of the SUSTENTA campaign families of the town started to collect rubbish and plastic bottles from the 4th September. One little boy alone managed to fill 40 bags!

The amount of rubbish collected during September was immense, let alone the 2 tons they collected in only 3 hours on the 25th! A day well spent! The Activities finished with a ceremony to award the winning teams (ones with the most rubbish) with a water filter.
