Help fund our project which prepares sustainable ways to fight waste reduction. The non-profit project is partially supported by the European Commission. We still need funds to support more youth with educational programmes and for awareness raising in the partner countries worldwide.

Your donations allow us to help the communities working to prevent and clean up pollution free of charge. 

We have had success raising funds through grant proposals. If you have strong writing skills, please help develop grant proposals together with us, or help us get in contact with funding opportunities you think we should pursue.
