A Tearfund project

About the project

The project is titled Turning plastic and other waste into green products, to improve the environment and provide poor people of Sindh and improve health and livelihoods. It aims to develop a holistic, sustainable and cost-effective recycling and solid waste management programme and behaviour change model in communities in Karachi, which can be replicated  in the rest of Sindh.

The project is being implemented by Tearfund Pakistan in four communities (Union councils) from two districts in Karachi: UC-11 Murad Memon and UC-08 Moinabad from District Malir, and UC-30 Saeedabad and UC-37 Naval Colony from District Kemari. 

The project has been adapted from a community-based model into a public-private partnership model by signing a memorandum of agreement signed between Tearfund and Sindh Solid Waste Management Board (SSWMB).

Other key partners and collaborators include Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, Jamshoro, and professors from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
