Chanja Datti, represented by Pelumi Samuel, was at the event organized by Mr. Ifesinachi of One Environment and friends, which held on the 10th of December 2016 at the National Park and Children Zoo Abuja.

The campaign started with talks by the Zoo manager and the in-house veterinary doctor. Marie Novotna of the Czech Embassy also spoke to the participants on wildlife conservation using Prague zoo as a case study.

The cleanup commenced immediately after the speeches. The participants which included secondary school students under the Power Forward Proven initiative, members of staff of the zoo and other volunteers; were grouped to cover various sections of the zoo with a mandate to collect one of papers, metals, plastic bottles, nylon, glass and organic waste, having been provided with gloves and waste bags for collection.

The Ark International Church Abuja, on Saturday, November 5, 2016, in partnership with Chanja Datti and Stop Don’t Drop, used the opportunity of a weekend spiritual retreat;, to impact on their immediate environment by engaging in a clean-up and sensitization exercise around the Catholic Retreat Centre, DRACC in Lugbe, Abuja. With the theme: Let’s Go M.A.D (Make A Difference), the program was used to further and advance the gospel of environmental sustainability.

Coming out in their numbers, the Church members wholeheartedly committed their efforts and energy, despite the scorching sun and increased temperature, to doing a thorough cleanup of the area, collecting a critical mass of wastes, and ensuring the wastes were sorted and segregated to the admiration and appreciation of the community members.

Chanja Datti, represented by Anita Omene Otubu, Dayo Pelumi, and Pelumi Samuel, was offered another opportunity to give a short talk on the 3Rs of #EnvironmentalSustainability: #Reduce, #Reuse and #Recycle.

The team was impressed with the commitment of the members of the Church to adopting and practicing an eco-friendly culture.

Big thanks to Sheila and the team from The Ark International Church!
