Siwa Clean & Green pt.2

Our children engaged in the two days acitivity Siwa Clean & Green 💚

Last year, our project Cycle and Recycle part1, introduced our children to basic environment issues and the meaning of recycling. At the same time we visited historical places with Siwan professional tour guide Omar Hamza at the Ministry of Antiquities; to make our children aware of their own precious heritage.

This year, on the 9th and 10th of May, in part 2, the activities revolved around raising awareness for the environment and the impact of garbage and plastics and most important what can WE do to help! We made our own cotton shoppers to directly give our children tools to target the problem. We made the deal that instead of using plastic bags, we would take our customized shoppers when buying something.

Together with the team of Greenish and the Robert Bosch Foundation, our children participated in games and engaged in up-cycling garbage collected on the streets the day before. The results were outmost creative and beautiful.
