World Clean Up Day 2019

Every third Saturday of September is World Clean Up Day! 

For this occasion, we cleaned the centre of Shianda to raise awareness on the importance of keeping the environment clean. We have also reached out officials and encouraged them to create a waste management system in the area.

Thank you to all the volunteers who came and join us in this act!

Nutrition and cooking workshops

With the help of our EUAV nutritionist Hanna, WEFOCO has been delivering a series of nutrition and cooking workshops to local communities. In these sessions, we explore the nutritional value of different types of food and we promote the importance of having variety and balance in diet. From guacamole to banana pancakes, community members have learned new recipes to diversify their meals and eat healthy.

Give opportunity to young mothers!

We have just launched our campaign ‘Give opportunity to young mothers!’.

Some girls between 12 and 18 years old have been denied access to education and have dropped out school as they became mothers.

Their families see them as hopeless, as a burden. WEFOCO sees these children as our future.

This is why we are campaigning for giving them another chance. We aim to raise awareness about early pregnancy, its consequences and how the community can take action. These young mothers need support: give them another opportunity!
