On the 16 of January 2012, the environmental education program called “Garbage Busters” was launched in the Soweto slums by volunteer Marta Sofia Pinto, with the help and support from ADDHU’s partners in Kenya, God’s Vision for Africa.


The objective of this program is to raise awareness towards important important issues such as environmental sustainabilty and the importance if hygiene and sanitation.


On the 26 of January, the first clean-up activities were conducted in the Soweto slums, and they involved the entire community under the strong leadership of the volunteers, the students of the Cityshine teachers, as well as the teachers. These clean-up activities will take place evey week.


ADDHU would like to thank and congratulate volunteer Marta for her dedication and inictiative! Together we can make a real difference!
