The mission of the foundation
The TOOLS FOR LIFE Foundation has set itself the goal of establishing clean drinking water, a functioning energy supply and sensible educational facilities where they are needed, because unfortunately this is still not a matter of course in many parts of the world. Resources such as water, energy and education are essential for a healthy life.
In Senegal, the disposal of plastic waste is a big problem. Even schoolyards are often full of plastic waste. To tackle this problem, TOOLS FOR LIFE has come up with a waste collection project.
So-called plastic-eating fishers are set up in schoolyards. These metal "fish" are meant to encourage children to dispose of plastic waste properly. As part of the installation of the plastic-eating fish, there will be a training session on the topic of recycling.
The plastic-eating fish will be made by a local metal worker. The fish will then be bought by TOOLS FOR LIFE and placed at the schools.
This is where the Senegalese entrepreneur Kareu comes in. Kareu will buy the collected plastic waste from the schools. The money can be used by the school to improve school operations (new teaching materials, etc.). Kareu processes the plastic waste into granules. He processes the granules into hoses for drip irrigation systems and into pipes in his small business. The hoses and pipes are also used in TOOLS FOR LIFE projects, e.g. in Ngollar or Pallo.
Our goal is to finance six of these fishes. In the period from 1st December 2022 to 24th December 2022, WALTER will donate €1 for every purchase. And if there is still some money missing at the end, we will of course make up for this part. Anything more will surly be donated to the project.
