About the WVPmover

Nchanji Franklin

35 years old

Well I am married to my wife Honorine, and we have son called Levi, I
am a holder of a bachelor’s degree in Mining engineering but am
passionate environmentalist. Coming from a low income country in
Africa, and also born into a family of ten siblings, it has not been easy
doing anything that involves finances is difficult.

About the project

My passion to see and have a clean environment coupled with the lack of adequate housing pushed me off my comfort zone to do something to the people and for the environment, thus Habitat Africa.

Educating people about the effects of plastic pollution and how to live a more sustainable life through weekly cleanups and educational programs. 

We have created bricks from our melting process and are trying to take production to the next level. 

We are raising awareness about environmental pollution in our local communities which we do in schools, by teaching students how to recycle waste plastics in simple innovative ways, in agriculture, furniture making, interior decoration etc.

 

Mid 2017 but became official by the government late 2018.

6 registered volunteers.

Many schools and students volunteering.

 

Moulds, boots, spades, shovels, trowels, screwdrivers, wheel barrows, heating source, gloves, googles etc.

How can we help you do MORE?

We intend to do this through seeking for grants, funds etc from organisations who can support our project financially so can we foot the bills of the whole operation.
