The new schools linking joint curriculum project involves the sharing of ideas for eco minded schools.
Malawi suffers from severe litter problems creating poor hygiene and sanitation and encouraging vermin. Waste can be converted into fuel briquettes avoiding the cutting down of firewood with its knock on impact on soil erosion and degradation.
Eco bricks cost little to make and save poor families money. Furthermore, they generate less carbon dioxide and smoke than firewood. As a result of this initiative, less women will prematurely die from smoke inhalation and more children will be able to attend school instead of collecting firewood.
Eco bricks will be an income generating, green, alternative.
Our schools linking project will look at all these curriculum areas.....and save lives.
