    August 24, 2017
    Green Valley Academy is one of the 25 local schools, 14 of them public, mobilized through a behavioural change campaign by the SWITCH-Asia project "PPP for 4Gs" (2014-2018), funded by the European Union and implemented by Winrock International in cooperation with the Namsaling Community Development Center. Since March 2016, the project has been conducting several behavioural change campaigns targeting schools, raising awareness among some 6000 students and their teachers about the adverse effects of waste burning and improved waste management practices. The project provided the schools with bins with pictorial illustrations and labels to promote source segregation into degradable and non-degradable waste.
