Meet Hatem, a 12-year-old Palestinian living in Burj Shemali camp in south Lebanon, while he gives you a tour of his school and shows you how Anera is working to promote environmentalism and hygiene in Lebanon by conducting a series of awareness sessions at UNRWA schools.
These sessions are held to change attitudes and behaviors around littering, pollution, recycling, sorting waste at source and composting. Anera has designed and rolled out a year-long plan, through which these core themes are communicated to young children in an interactive and fun way. The long term goal is to help shape the youth in Lebanon regarding the environment. The Community Based Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion Program is funded by UNICEF and implemented by Anera.
