Ethiopia - Green Club Activities in Don Bosco Gambella

21 July 2022

Don Bosco students are always smart in everything and everywhere. Gambella is a small region in the South west of Ethiopia with a population of less than 500,000 people and the inhabitants of this region are belonging to several tribal groups of which the Agnuak and Nuer are the majority. The Salesians of Don Bosco has been functioning for more than 20 years in the region. Don Bosco Catholic School is a well-known school of the region which caters to more than 800 students from grade 1 up to grade 10 and has a good name in the region for providing quality education through quality management, quality teachers and quality infrastructure. The GREEN CLUB has been in function for more than three years but of late has taken very active role in conscientising the people about the need of a healthy environment to live in. Two days were selected for cleaning the town and all the students of the Green Club enthusiastically went about the town clearing all the plastic covers, plastic bottles papers, carton wastes and so many other materials that are littered in the town. Definitely it was an eye-opener for the municipal management too, who have pledged to take measures to keep up the cleanliness of the town and keep going the good work started by Don Bosco students. The students also wore the T-shirts with the caption ‘EARTH FIRST’.
