Enhancing farmers health l Waste collection

Among so-called good environmental practices (GEP) which we are promoting, we have the collection of old pesticide boxes and bags which are thrown and left in the fields. Without appropriate information, some farmers and their families, including women and children (re)use and play with these boxes and bags. The effects of the wrong management of these boxes and bags directly affect farmers and their families health.

During our waste collection day we discuss with farmers and their families the health risks and undertake jointly waste collection. The pictures are from our collection day in Gnoboyo (IC).
