Plans for implementation and sustainability
PLAN OF IMPLEMENTATION - Having multiple sources of waste papers collection. - Putting in place proper tools in the paper plant. - Adequate training of staffs. SUBSTAINABILITY OF THE PROJECT - First and foremost quality of the final products. - Price comparison between the locally made paper and the imported one. - If the production cost of my paper will be higher than the imported paper, definetly my idea will aborted. Based upon the principe of "Don't waste your waste" and by taking advantage of massive cabbage (waste papers at large) plus the technical assistance of our government office colled NIRDA (National Industrial Research and Development Agency) is going to give my ideas a clear streamline as far as implemantation is concerned. Financially has been always a bottleneck not only in Africa, i have to try my best to search for more funds (how to get collaborators) and from this collaborators my project idea can secure a lon at Development Bank of Rwanda (BRD) Collaborators are many, starts by companies handling or using papers (Printing houses), schools, some government ministries, etc...Read More

Hello everyone my name is Brenda Clark from Germany. I am on this platform to share my testimony on how Dr Gbogbo helped me shrink my fibroid naturally and gave me some herbal medicines which I use to cure my 6 years of infertility. I have been trying to get pregnant for the past 6 years before I finally met Dr Gbogbo. I had tried several medicines provided by my doctor which all didn't work out and couldn't shrink or get me pregnant. At first when my colleague introduced Dr Gbogbo to me I had a skeptical opinion about African herbal medicines but I had no option than to give it a trial which I did and I got a possible result at the end. I only use it for 2 weeks as directed by Dr Gbogbo. I am a proud mother of twins, This is to every woman suffering from fibroids, pcos and infertility or any health challenge that you're yet to find a solution to. Please meet Dr Gbogbo, He has one of the best herbal medicines from Africa. Thank you all for reading.

Good day Regis
I have taken some time to go through your idea and voted, It is a good idea to recycle than sending waste to landfill sites, with the global climate change we are facing, recycling contributes a lot.
Please read my idea and vote for me
Dear Irene Bundi,
I appreciate the way you posted a very good comment on Regis' project.
Yes, you are right. Recycling paper helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that can contribute to climate change. Also, this practice is cost effective as it takes 70% less energy and water to recycle paper than to create new paper from trees. Moreover, manufacturing with recovered paper cuts down the environment pollution.
Even if you are in the same competition, you didn't hesitate to support your colleague HIRWA Regis. It shows that this project very much important in our society.
Furthermore, you demonstrated your professionalism and your fair play. For this, I wish you too the success.
Thank you very much.
Recycling paper helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that can contribute to climate change. It takes 70% less energy and water to recycle paper than to create new paper from trees.

It will also help us maintain a healthy environment by saving landfill space, preventing air and water pollution which is harmful to our environment.
Looking forward to seeing this project implemented.

THIS IS A VERY GOOD AND INTERESTING PROJECT ECO-FRIENDLY, AS WE THE WAST MANAGEMENT IS A BIG ISSUE AND MORE COSTLY, WE WOULD APPRECIATE TO EXTENT THIS WORLDWIDE, AS CLIMATE CHANGE IS HAVING A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON US
Very great idea. Once awarded, this project would highly contribute to reducing the paper waste from offices, schools and other institutions using papers on daily work.
It would also contribute to the protection of the environment by collecting all waste papers, save trees used for paper production etc.
And finally, it would contribute to reduced price of paper.
Highly appreciated and recommended!
I know that this man is experienced in printer services. For sure, this project will have a positive impact in relation to protect the environment and therefore, saving a lot of money.
Great! Your ideas are prolific! As I can see this project will bring a lots of solutions in a our country it'll be solving the waste of papers, it'll reduce the importation of papers,the level of unemployment will be reduced because some people will find jobs especially youth, it'll help in maintaining our environment and keeping our country clean etc... So Best of luck dear HIRWA Regis.
I strongly recommend this project as it is really bringing good solution to the waste management in Rwanda.
When we walk around, we observe a huge number of waste paper collected in various dump sites (e.g. Nduba landfill). We have to protect our environment by recycling them and by doing so, millions of trees will be saved.
I also think that by the success of this project, even other similar projects will come in, targeting other used materials in order to minimize the pollution of our environment.
I really support and appreciate this good initiative.
Wonder mindset idear,this will be a welcoming development in which the community and the country will benefit from,providing jobs to the youths around printing industry,and also it may bring a lasting solutions for a sustainable development.
