Garbage Bins for Schools

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.

Those wishing to support this self-help NGO can contact Heng Yon Kora at 365-535
