With this World Connect grant, the community organization called Girls should thrive initiative (GIST) will train 200 school girls, teenage mothers, and uneducated young adult women to transform waste materials in their environments into useful house hold items which can be sold. Training on ICT and financial literacy will also be included in the workshops. Their long-term plan is to create a cooperative where 3,000 women run a recycling plant and collectively sell products.
