Youth to Support Sanitation Management

By Bernice Bessey

The National Service Scheme (NSS) has lunched the Urban Sanitation Module to engage youth who would be serving the country for the next nine months assisting in waste collection and management.

The idea behind this module, according to the NSS, is to enable data collection and distribution of waste bins to households, shops and stores. The module also hopes to provide opportunities of job creation for the youth upon completion.

Improper management of waste, which is the main brain behind this module, has cost the country monies meant for development, which have to be diverted into the treatment of preventable diseases.
