Sanitation, Health, Attitude & Practices for clean Environment (SHAPE)

Project is intended to sensitize local communities to change their attitude
towards keeping their surroundings clean and eventually build a sustained
habit towards environmental cleanliness.

The SHAPE Approach

Awareness and Sensitization Campaigns

We believe that Ghana’s sanitation condition has not improved significantly mainly due to the bad attitudes of some Ghanaians. There have been several efforts, including clean up campaigns by the government and local authorities but these have not been sustainable; hence no expressive developments observed.

Catch them Young

The good book admonishes us to “Teach the child the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Prov. 22:6. Also, there is a popular saying which goes that “You cannot teach an old dog new tricks”. Both statements give a clear indication that, it is much easier to inculcate a particular habit or behaviour into people when they are young.
