THE STORY:

Hallow Everyone! I am a Tanzanian social entrepreneur with a passion for recycling and environmental issues. I am a founder of a for-profit social enterprise that use post consumer plastic waste and transforms it into environmentally friendly plastic lumber. This plastic lumber is an affordable alternative to timber, which reduces the need for building material manufactured from wood. This helps to preserve forests by lowering deforestation rates and decreasing the effects of climate change.

As a green business our goal is triple fold; to recycle waste plastic and thus provide an alternative waste management solution to the plastic menace, to provide an affordable alternative to timber (To curb deforestation and reduce the effects of climate change) and to provide employment and thus a source of living to many unemployed youths.

I am so excited to have been selected to attend the StartingBloc Institute in New Orleans but I need your help to get there! I have a very limited budget however, I was awarded a partial scholarship towards the institute tuition by StartingBloc, but I still need to pay for the remaining tuition fee and cover lodging and travel costs to New Orleans. I am hopeful that wonderful people like you will help me crowdfund the remaining costs and help me achieve this dream.

Thank you for your donation and support!
