Alhassan Baba Muniru: Local Problems Solved by Local People
Alhassan: At Recycle Up! Ghana, we believe that local problems need to be solved by local people. We focus on young people, high school and university students, and young entrepreneurs. We believe that these change-makers will create a more sustainable future for Ghana and beyond. Therefore our major purpose is to train and empower the Ghanaian youth and provide a platform for them to tackle the plastic waste challenges that exist in their communities.
