Nigeria is faced with environmental issues such as air pollution, water pollution, lead exposures, poor waste management, deforestation, desertification, wind erosion, and flooding, which has harmed the population and may lead to more catastrophic consequences in the years to come. This dire reality is reversible and requires the concerted action of everyone.
The programme aims at increasing awareness about environmental issues and promoting more-environmental-friendly practices.

– Provision of Proper Waste Disposal Facilities
