Waste Warriors held teacher training sessions as part of our Educational Program on solid waste management on the 16th & 17th April 2018, at Manav Bharti India International School. 40 teachers from 27 different schools attended the training. They were trained by the fabulous Neha Sachdeva who was our teacher trainer for the Ambala project.
Educational materials were distributed amongst the teachers in the form of toolkits created by WasteLess and adapted for the program by Waste Warriors. The aim is for the teachers to conduct these toolkits in their respective schools with the aim of educating the students and staff about the importance of waste management in way that is both interesting and fun!
