Children gather for the holiday break Science Camp activities. (left), Team leader, and students collecting plastic trash for examination, recycling, reuse and education.
“The participants went through the streets collecting waste plastic materials that are non-biodegradable. They carried the collected materials for recycling as best way of avoiding pollution.We found market dwellers burning trash including the plastics which perpetuates pollution. We did otherwise.”
Jiggers are small bugs that are in dry soil and dirt in homes and school yards. The crawl into skin breaks in children’s feet and cause infections. This year the Hands of Charity Vacation Science Camp visited families affected by jiggers.
“Thanks a lot to sponsors,youths took time as prepared by teachers and facilitators to visit victims of jigger infestation in remote villages. They really felt for them. The objective was to teach our children to observe hygiene, keep a clean environment and learn how to take care of others.They were really moved.”
