3Rs Education
Description/achievement of initiative

We aim to educate lower income communities as well as the general public of the importance of the 3Rs, climate change, environmental protection and waste management. Tackling as many areas of our social platform as possible, we use an efficient and effective method to promote key issues that the Planet faces today with a special focus on youth.

Implementation methodologies

We have a structured method to achieve our goals: Step 1: conduct R&D and surveys to determine the actual needs of the area or community Step 2: assign the corresponding program under goGreenToy / Green It Forward Step 3: allocate resources to implement program under the global project ----- In order to do this, we seek to: 1. Forge relationships with the community as well as the institutions in charge of the area 2. Provide a link between these stakeholders to create proper impact and add continuity 3. Work on fundraisers and support in order to do the work 4. Provide skills to youth and all interested within our programs to impact poverty, the economy, inequality, etc. as well as environmental education and emotional health 5. Try to collaborate and unify all NGOs in the country in order to best allocate resources and to support each other to create real change **Our members had been working informally since 1998-1999
