One Ghana Movement donated 40 trash bins to the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to support NCCE’s environmental campaign for a cleaner Ghana in schools.

The gift was part of the One Ghana Movement’s ‘Adopt a Bin Project’ and was meant to complement the NCCE’s effort to promote the culture of proper waste disposal and segregation among school children in Greater Accra Region.

Receiving the bins, Chairperson of NCCE Ms. Josephine Nkrumah said the Commission found a “worthy partner” in One Ghana Movement, which had in recent times shown good faith with the ideals and vision of NCCE.

Ms. Nkrumah, in expressing gratitude for the assistance, remarked that the younger generation was capable of saving the country from its sanitation crisis. She noted that, through its Citizenship Week programs, the commission had been engaging students on the culture of waster disposal. She said the bins would go support that effort in selected schools that show commitment to waste separation.

Executive Secretary of One Ghana Movement Ms. Emily Kanyir Nyuur urged Ghanaians to come on board in adopting a right attitude towards the environment.

Ms. Nyuur lauded the NCCE for its resolve to improve a high sense of nationalism among citizens especially on its renewed efforts at tackling insanitary conditions in the country through public education in basic schools.
