The Community Sanitation & Recycling Organisation (CSARO) handed over waste collection
equipment to three schools on Jan 15, according to a CSARO press release.
The three schools-Chey Chum Neah Primary School, Yukanthor High School, and Toul
Sleng Primary School-decided to participate in CSARO's Environmental Hygiene Programme.
The program was facilitated by the Khan Chamcarmon civil authorities.
CSARO is a recently-established NGO which for the last 12 months has been implementing
a Neighborhood Improvement Programme (NIP) near Phnom Penh's main drainage canal
in Khan Chamcarmon.
CSARO is currently focused on three objectives: Solid Waste Management-a program
involving waste picker development activities including social and economic improvements
through self-help groups; Public Hygiene Awareness-aimed at increasing public knowledge,
attitudes and practices on environmental and solid waste issues; and, Community Development
and Infrastructure Programme-designed to assist urban poor communities to undertake
improvements in access to clean water, sanitation, and sewer and sidewalk construction.
