On the 8th of September 2022, we had the pleasure to welcome Delegates from The German Delegation that comprised of representatives from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), German Protestant Development Organization (Bread for The world), German Catholic Development Organization (Misereor),  Protestant Association for Cooperation in Development (EZE) and the Catholic Association for Cooperation in Development (KZE) that visited the Recycle Up Ghana’s Hub. We had insightful, down to earth discussions with the delegates that broadened their views on what we do as an organization. We enjoyed getting to know more about them and their visit.

RUG’s Director, Abdulrahim Shaibu-Issah gave an overview of the vision, goals and objectives of Recycle Up Ghana. He presented RUG as a powerful and highly passionate organization and highlighted the relevance of our social work as an organization;” Supporting youths and women to build local solutions to eradicate waste problems in Ghana is crucial as Ghana produces 1.7 billion Tonnes of waste annually, and most are dumped on landfills and oceans”. Climate Change has declined economic productivity in Ghana with increased unemployment.

The Event offered some of our entrepreneurs like Eco Period, Waste Cure, Upcycle Comfort to connect with the delegates, share their success stories and milestones, goals and ambitions, and next level projects.

It was an awesome privilege to receive these delegates at RUG Hub and share our impact stories with them. It’s a story of transforming unemployment and waste pollution by supporting youths and women design local solutions to waste problems in their communities and Ghana.

Special thanks to the Delegated Team from Germany.
