Rallying schools for the Safe School Environmental Campaign

COMINSUD visited newly identified schools to introduce the Safe School Environmental Campaign that takes place within the Ecokids project. These visits were made to schools within Bamenda I, II and III sub divisions. We could successfully involve 20 new schools into the campaign in addition to those ones, who have joined the campaign already last year. Pictures of the present situation of  the school environment, water, toilet and waste management facilities with high potential for improvement were also taken during the visits.
