LEAD TRANSFORMATION INITIATIVE PARTICIPANTS TRANSFORM REFUSE DUMP TO DEMONSTRATION FARM AND STUDENTS FARM MARKET
Kunle Jaiyeoba Street is located very close to FUTA junction behind foursquare church in Akure Ondo State, this street houses over 200 Futa students and about 73 households.
Before now the street was known to have a dung hill which accommodates all manner of waste. Even with the regular visit of the waste management authorities, the dwellers and passerby still delight in dumping refuse on the site, making the place an eyesore and exposing the dwellers of the street to dangerous diseases. More so, the dung hill produces unpleasant smell that is dangerous to human health and the presence of the waste littering the environment does not give the environment a befitting look, giving it a very dirty appearance
Kunle jaiyeoba Street experienced a major turnaround when L.E.A.D Transformation Initiative relocated to the environment because her new office is situated there. The dung hill became a pain point for L.E.A.D and the decision taken to solve the problem was to eradicate the waste on the dung hill site and convert the place to a demonstration farm and a farm market with this there will be a waste free environment
The action taken by L.E.A.D Transformation Initiative has affected the community positively;
A good number of the inhabitants of the community has backyard or front yard Garden.
The dung hill has been eradicated and converted to a demonstration farm in which vegetables where planted.
Farm market was introduced to help dwellers of the community to have quick and easy access to organic products at affordable prices.
Diseases have reduced to the barest minimum because the dung hill has been eradicated.
Unpleasant odor doesn’t exist anymore because of the eradication of the dung hill.
The former dung hill is now a green garden adding beauty to the environment.
The pics tell the story of our impact.
Thank you,
