In April, we sponsored our first Mass Clean-Up, which took place on Beau Vallon Beach and was jointly organized and funded by ourselves and SYAH (SIDS Youth AIMS Hub).
The aim of the event was to raise awareness amongst school children about the detrimental effects of littering our beaches on endangered species such as sea turtles. Sustainability for Seychelles also participated by organizing a painting station for anti-littering signage on the site of the weekly ‘bazar labrin’.
