Why Is It Important?
The children BEEP team members are committed to contribute to the solution of the solid waste challenges in Kathmandu and there are several resources why this is a highly important issue. The solid waste situation in Kathmandu has severe negative effect on environment and the inhabitants of the city. Solid waste can infect drinking water and become source of water born and infection diseases like diarrhea, worm and pneumonias. In addition there is a risk of having metals and chemicals infecting drinking water and farming land. This can in its turn increased the human risk of e.g cancer. Solid waste can also attract rodents spreading different diseases to human being.
An improved handling of solid waste is a crucial ingredient to improve human health and well being in Kathmandu.
All though solid waste management is such an important issue affecting human well being and health, it is often ignored by the general public. Raising awareness through children is a unique model in Nepal. We are engaged to create a better future for the coming generations starting with the children of today.
