Woman Carrying Garbage Bags

Once upon a time, I worked in Aid Development. I originally signed up to work in the education section, however soon after I started I was switched over to urban development. Here I learned everything and anything I needed to, but never really wanted to know, about trash. It made me really aware of the waste management issues that face our countries today. Teach your kids, even from this early age, about what they can do to help. It only takes a few changes to make a big difference.
