A Partnership to Transform Young Minds
The Mustapha Energy project, which is set in the Cape Flats area of South Africa called Athlone. The project aims to utilise the combustible fraction of MSW to fuel 2.7MWe (15MWt) of a combined heat and power (CHP) Thermal Waste To Energy (WTE) plant using proven but modularised technology. Waste Transformation for Energy (WT4E) has been appointed to implement the corporate social responsibility scope, in which they will be working with the local schools to educate children between the ages of 8 to 14 years on waste management. WT4E will be taking up partnership with the Mina Foundation, an organisation on a mission to end period poverty by providing a sustainable, eco-friendly and healthy alternative to period care. Together, with a group of phenomenal facilitators, Mina travels from place to place and empowers youth by providing fun workshops on Sexual Reproductive Health and the impact of period products on our planet, on delivering the key deliverables as defined below:
1. Inspire children by showing them the difference they can make to the world by adopting more sustainable behaviours at school. Empower them to change their environment, turning waste into opportunities and resources. Help them take the message home.
2. Bring waste education to life in African schools and support them to take on organizing waste and recycling regularly to become sustainable at the school
3. To make sure that large projects such as ME tick all the corporate social impact engagements so that the project is executed with full Public knowledge.
4. To teach children and the greater community in and around the ME project location about the technology used for beneficiation waste to produce energy.
Project is set to kick off in the first quarter of 2022 with the implementation. The partnership between WT4E and Mina will seek to work together in a collective message on waste reduction, sanitation and responsible waste management for a better future.
