Posts Tagged ‘Liberia’s first recycling center’

Every single day when I was dealing with my daily routines, one part of my brain is always working for ‘ how to make this world a better living place ‘ Being a volunteer in many areas changed my perspective and I now can not stop thinking other people who have less opportunities socially and economically.  When I heard a success story from Africa , it makes me feels so great. Now,  I want to share this story with you :

James’ biggest hope is to empower the people in his community. One way he is doing that is by running a recycling an compost center in Monrovia, Liberia. He provides jobs with a purpose – and helps keep the city cleaner.
