The Eco-Education Center will be running in an elementary School, located in proximity of 2 cigarette manufacturing plants. The air is polluted by the fumes of the plants and a lot of adults and children from the area have respiratory problems.
People also burn their waste, which pollutes the air even more. At school, they also burn the garbage. They do bury the organic waste, which is good, but still they could process it as compost, which would be even better.
Mr. Sugiyono, has been working as library manager at the school for 6 years. He is excited to introduce modern books to his students and to raise awareness and love for the environment.
