In line with JA Nigeria’s mission of providing business and economic education for young people, a recycling program titled “Every Can Counts” will be implemented.
Every Can Counts is an educational program for primary and secondary school students, delivered to students between the ages of 11 to 13.
During the program, students will be taught and motivated to know about the meaning and value of aluminum recycling, the importance of putting recycling into practice and how this can help them become entrepreneurs who care about a sustainable future.
For effective delivery of the program, volunteers will be trained, assigned to schools and given a manual that contains a guide and detailed information on the sessions of Every Can Counts.
Currently, the program will be implemented in two states – Lagos and Abia state with 1,200 students as beneficiaries. The new partnership was developed by JA Nigeria as an outcome of Novelis/GZI partnership to further educate students on recycling, land-free pollution and aluminum production.
Special thanks to Novelis and GZI for bringing this program to life and giving the young mind a chance to see clear possibilities in building a sustainable future.
