Clean environment – healthy environment
The purpose of the project is to contribute to improved environment and better living conditions for the Roma population in the areas of Sredorek, Bavci and Baraki in Kumanovo. These areas have substandard living conditions and no established system or awareness for waste disposal. In the framework of the project, awareness of these people will be raised through various activities. Persons will be trained in waste management, in cooperation with the public communal company, waste bins will be purchased and positioned all around these areas, and then collected. In addition, a large eco-action of 2 months will be performed in order to clean the illegal dumpsite in this area, where a small children playground will be built, and consequently prevent future re-creation of the dumpsite. Eco-patrols will be established that will regularly monitor the areas and report any illegal waste disposal.
