My story

[p]Ni Sa Bula Vinaka great people of facebook. We are doing a fundraising event on the Island of Moturiki. The primary school students of Moturiki will be walking the length of the island whilst dodging the plastic waste that endangered species found in their waters have to combat every day. They will complete this relay to help raise money for an exciting new recycling project in Moturiki! Help us in achieving our fundraising goal and sponsor the different student teams within the community of Moturiki. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Within our base here at GVI Caqalai we have been preparing plastic pollution obstacles challenging the students to consider the negative impacts plastic waste imposes on endangered species. Empowering the students of Moturiki with this knowledge of plastic pollution will help to diminish distribution of litter in the future. By completing this challenge the students will help us to raise funds for the implementation of new recycling points in two villages of Moturiki. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Currently, there is no recycling infrastructure on Moturiki; with your help, we can build one! Last year, our GVI Caqalai team collected over 1000kg of rubbish between the ten villages of Moturiki. Due to its proximity to the sea, Moturiki is directly affected by the overflow of waste into the ocean, and having access to responsible waste disposal will be the key to managing the abundance of waste found on their shores. Our intent is to build and help to manage two recycling points on Moturiki, with the goal of reducing the amount of waste making its way into the ocean. [/p][p][br][/p][p]As a team here at GVI Caqalai our goals follow the guidelines of the United Nations Development Programme and Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production. This goal aims to substantially reduce waste generation and production by year 2030, part of that reduction is done by recycling. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Friday, the 17th of May is Endangered Species Day so why not do a Relay for Recycling!? The primary school students will walk the length of Moturiki whilst wriggling through the obstacles that plastic pollution can create for marine animals on a daily basis. We will need to raise as much money as possible to help this cause. We would like to provide all of the construction materials for the recycling points and build the recycling points ourselves. 2017 and 2018 saw volunteers and staff deliver successful Reduce, Reuse, Recycle workshops in the villages, and post construction we will run further workshops empowering the community with knowledge of environmental best practice when it comes to waste management and recycling, including removal of the waste from Moturiki. You can help by sponsoring the different color teams (Green, Blue, Yellow, or Red) of the school while they walk the length of Moturiki by directly donating to the GVI Trust. If you can’t donate but still want to help, then please share this link to as many people as you can, it’s easy![/p][p][br][/p][p]The community would benefit hugely from this project and they would be deeply grateful for your support.[img][/img][/p]
