Our team of environmental heroes in Gugulethu is so committed to cleaning up their hood that they get together to do a clean-up every month! On 27 March the youth were joined by some neighbors to clean up a walkway that they use to get to school. Despite the warm weather and hard work, everyone kept a positive attitude. 85 bags of rubbish were removed and the pathway looked much better after they were finished with their hard work!

On 1 May the environmental champions gathered once again to clean up a park bordering the community garden in Gugulethu. It was a depressing site before they got stuck in, with loads of building rubble, which is the most difficult dumped waste to remove!

By lunchtime the park was clear and 79 bags of rubbish were removed! The team then retreated to Gogo’s kitchen for some well-earned chicken curry.
