The 2013 Community Health Awareness Days will focus on the two core villages of Zawiya Ahansal, Aguddim and Amezray. The program will be spread over a time frame of two weeks and incorporate a variety of activities including: roundtable discussions (community leaders and government officials, elementary school students, female and male heads of households); presentations at the elementary school and tutoring program; community educational workshops (garbage storage, composting, garbage disposal, connected health issues); fieldtrips to water sources, current garbage collection areas and specific areas of impending concern; and garbage clean up days.

The following goals have been set for the 2013 Community Health Awareness Days.

  • Compile the community’s concerns and beliefs about garbage and refuse.
  • Gain an understanding of current garbage disposal methods and locations.
  • Educate the community on garbage’s affect on individual, family and community health. Long-term and short-term. 
  • Discuss impact of untreated garbage on soil and water sources
  • Discuss impact of untreated garbage on domestic animals
  • Importance of clean homes and villages to detract flies
  • Importance of clean homes and villages as source of pride
  • Impact of tourism on garbage accumulation
  • Discuss relevance to the connection with climate change and current global strategies to slow current trends
  • How to separate garbage
  • How to reuse and recycle
  • How to compost
  • Provide an opportunity for all stakeholders to brainstorm and discuss their viewpoints.
  • Clean up the villages.
  • Create a list of potential options for attacking the garbage issues.
  • Prioritize locations and situations for improvement.
