The Cleanup took place in two locations over 4 large sites. -Dirty market place in a popular Neighborhood (HLM Market) -Coastline at the entrance of Dakar (Rufisque) Why let's do it Senegal? One look at our immediate environment allows us to realize how big problem is waste management in Senegal. At every corner, there are masses of garbage which complicate the daily lives of the population. Our cities are crumbling under the weight of the garbage and one day of non-collection of these wastes causes enormous losses. We know that local and even state officials are struggling to find a solution for this problem. The street is not a dumpsite, neither are the public places. Eradicating this waste, cleaning public places, markets and other areas can help to raise awareness among the masses and policy makers but also to give a new face to our environment. With whom? Mobilization capacity of Senegalese youth has been demonstrated. Schools are increasingly engaged in civic activities and youth movements. Some associations are working in the field of the environment, local communities and other stakeholders (businesses, national ministries and departments etc.). We have mobilized more than 700 people and financial and material resources to carry out such an action. Where and when? At first, we thought it would be useful and appropriate to define our work at two departments before expanding throughout the country. For questions concerning the mobilization of human resources, we have targeted for the department of Dakar, the HLM Market and the Department of Rufisque coastline. The date of Sunday, November 11th 2012 was chosen to conduct these two actions simultaneously. The overall outcome of the cleanups was successful. In January 2013 we plan to organize a national clean up! Wish us luck!
