Thank you to all those who contributed to our campaign to ‘Save the Team‘. Due to your donations and a generous grant from Chatham House we are able to continue working with communities in Java to improve village life, stop pollution generally and ocean plastics in particular. The Chatham House Microgrant will enable us to set up a further Waste Bank (self-managed village recycling centre).
Yadi, our project manager, will continue to provide support to communities and monitor progress. In his own words:
“I am responsible for overseeing the overall direction and progress of the project. My role involves coordinating with our partners and stakeholders, managing the project budget and ensuring that all project activities are completed on time and to a high standard”
“What motivates me is the desire to make a positive impact on the environment and protect our planet for future generations. I joined CLEAR because I share their mission of reducing single-use plastic and promoting sustainable practices. Seeing the devastating effects of plastic pollution on wildlife and ecosystems has been a major wake-up call for me. I believe that we all have a responsibility to take action and make a difference”
“In my work with CLEAR I have had many personal triumphs, from organising successful beach cleanups to advocating for changing people’s perspective regarding single use plastic issues in local communities. One particular achievement that stands out to me is the launch of our waste bank and refill station program which has helped to reduce plastic sachet waste and promote eco-friendly habits among our supporters”
“Looking to the future my hope is that we can continue to raise awareness about the importance of reducing single-use plastic and work towards a more sustainable future for our planet. I believe that by working together and making small changes in our daily lives we can create a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable world for everyone”
Please consider making a one off or regular donation so the CLEAR team can continue their work in Java.
