Delhi - Mercoledì 17 Ottobre 2018 - Conserve India marks the World Day with New Initiative

To mark 17 October, the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty, Conserve India launched a new training project for a group of refugee women in tailoring and embroidery. Supported by UNHCR, the project aims to enable women to improve their income livelihoods.

Born of a desire to reduce India's mountain of waste, improve energy efficiency, and support some of Delhi's poorest in the city's slums, Conserve India carries out a recycling project for thousands of plastic bags that cannot be composted or recycled locally.

Today, Conserve India employs and trains hundreds of people from Delhi's most disadvantaged communities to clear their streets of the plague of plastic bag waste. Once the waste bags are turned into HRP products they are sold for profits which can be spent in those same communities on education and welfare programmes.
