Explain your project in details:

The project was carried out with 35 waste pickers from more than 5 cities. Twelve training meetings were held on sustainability, environmental education, women's health, healthy nutrition, violence against women, personal financial management, cooperative financial management and entrepreneurship. Besides the formations, there was a day of embellishment and graduation with the participation of family members. There were no vacancies. In Brazil, there are more than 800 thousand waste pickers and there are no programs for training these professionals. We want to bring this project to Brazil to train these professionals, especially the female audience who are the majority.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Apoena Socioambiental is one of the only companies in Brazil that provides services for waste pickers. In Brazil, 90% of the selective collection is still made by waste catadiers, but they do not have any type of professional training to work in the area. Apoena Socioambiental has an impact on the improvement of the selective collection, increase of the income for the possibility of making a better financial management, environmental education class so that the population separates the residues at home, works with self-esteem and protagonism of this class for the search of improvement policies. With the project, it improves the selective collection and less garbage goes to sanitary landfill, it increases the income, it increases the self-esteem, qualification for the attendance to the public, health care and security.

Sustainability and future plans

Apoena Socioambiental works with advisory, consulting, design and management of projects and events in the socio-environmental area. We seek financial support in companies that generate solid waste and need to practice reverse logistics, international and national funds, national government and also in providing services to companies, condominiums and other areas that want to manage solid waste. For the future, we want to continue working on improving the destination of solid waste so that they do not end up in landfills or landfills. Currently, Brazil "buries" (landfill), 2 billion reais. We need alternatives to generate income for families and reduce environmental impact.

Congratulations upon this innovative project. Your concern for pickers is deep and having them more than just pickers is such a good idea. Judging from humanitarian perspective, these are the people with a pure heart and a soft spot for the environment. All we want is clean environment to support all beings.
Wishing you well in the project
