Trash to Treasure: free housing for internally displaced persons in northern Nigeria

I started this project (Trash to Treasure) this year with the purpose of recycling plastic waste for the setting up of free housing for internally displaced persons in northern Nigeria due to insurgency and terrorist activities.

It is a known fact that northern Nigeria has been suffering from insurgency for many years now which has resulted in the setting up of IDP camps. These camps has served it's purpose but there's is need to provide more suitable housing instead of the regular polymer tents which isn't conducive die to the harsh weather conditions.

Africa has been termed a wasteland for many reasons... Our rivers, seas and lands are being littered with wastes varying from plastics to metals and even paper waste. All these can be harnessed by recycling these materials into useful purposes such as housing, arts and crafts and also industrial uses which saves the environment from pollution and also helps in reducing global warming.

This project has already commenced on a small scale, which involves gathering of waste materials by regular hand picking and selecting. We as a team are planning to commence construction of free housing for some of the internally displaced persons for free starting from April.

We hope to get support from communities to help actualized this goal
