The Litter Project

Lisa Lessard, a Winsom Foundation Board Member, spear headed the “No-Litter” campaign that was launched in 2008. The project adopted the slogan “Litter…It Just Isn’t Natural” which served as a guiding mission for the children. In the project children were taught catchy songs about garbage and appropriate ways to dispose of waste. The students created a poster that was printed and put around the school. Re- usable car garbage bags were made and given out to adults and large drums were painted by the children and placed around the village. The project’s goal was to ensure that garbage drums are in every village in Cayo and that all children can be taught about recycling and the proper way of disposing of waste.
