We integrate socialisation about the impact of waste & litter on health, related to vector-borne diseases such as Malaria and Dengue. Litter causes blocked drains and gutters which leads to stagnant water, a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

We collaborate with Perdhaki in Labuan Bajo to spread awareness in the fishing communities where we establish a waste & litter collection system.
