Over 900 young persons commended for their participation in an islandwide beach clean-up campaign
Over 900 young persons are being commended for their participation in an islandwide beach clean-up campaign which is currently ongoing around the island.
Executive Director of the Dominica Youth and Environment Organization (DYEO) Mr Terry Raymond said that the campaign has already been executed in some 30 communities in Dominica.
He said that one of the major aspects of this campaign will be the data collection process, where exact information will be documented on the types, weight and amount of garbage collected.
Mr Raymond also applauded the efforts of the young people and support groups who are partnering with DYEO in this venture.
Most notable among them is the Dominica Solid Waste Management Corporation.
He also called on corporate companies and citizens to support ventures like these, as they provide multiple benefits not just the youth but Dominica by extension.
Persons may contact the Dominica Youth Environment Organization to get more information on which communities will be targeted this weekend.
