Building Affordable School Structures Using Plastic Bricks made from Plastic Waste to Promote Zero Plastic Waste in Sierra Leone
This project shall produce bricks from plastics which can be used to build affordable government and government assisted schools. They can also be used to build additional classes for schools that need more classes to accommodate higher enrollment. It is believed that the intervention will lead to increased awareness about environmental issues and will improve the livelihoods of the beneficiaries. When addressed and communities learn the importance together with pupils, it will encourage the young and old to advocate against littering. The project objectives are:
1. To sensitize stakeholders on the importance of circular economy and zero plastic waste
2. To form groups among communities in surrounding schools and train them in plastic waste recycling practices.
And the expected results of this project are:
1. School structures built using plastic bricks that are made from plastic waste
2. Communities sensitized together with stakeholders on relevance of zero plastic waste
3. Increased number of people involve in plastic recycling practices (collection of plastic waste and recycling it)
4. Young generation become Zero Waste Ambassadors.
5. Zero plastic waste in out gutters, drainages and waters
6. Job opportunities created

Project Characteristics and Results
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
A way we can sustain our project activities we work in partnership with other groups. This could be in the area of cross referrals, project development and/or sharing of resources. Strong partnerships can bring on board diverse strengths, skills and experience to better serve communities and sustain gains made thus enhancing the livelihoods of project beneficiaries. Together, partners can establish actions to keep projects benefiting communities for longer periods of time. .
Inovative Financial Mechanisms
Accumulating, storing and effectively sharing knowledge allows to create a culture that can significantly improve efficiency and employee happiness. But ineffective knowledge management impacts the financial front and employee satisfaction levels. It is therefore important to manage the knowledge of all projects implemented by an organization. Through the key components of knowledge management which are people, processes and technology, we plan to capture everything about this project. The People will lead, sponsor and support knowledge sharing. Defined Processes are needed to manage and measure knowledge flows and Technology connects the right people to the right content at the right time. With good use of these components in implementing this project, we will have the following knowledge products: • Infographics & Flyers • Project Performance Reports (PPRs) • Annual Performance Reports (APRs) • Briefing Notes • Mid-term Evaluation Reports (MTRS) • Project stories (Project change stories) • Project videos
