Shape Attitude Ghana took its sensitisation campaign on littering to the Zion Church of Winneba on Sunday, 8 November 2015. The visit was the second time to the church in the second round of visits to churches in Winneba to raise awareness on the challenges the country is facing on indiscriminate littering and dumping of refuse and open defecation.
Shape Attitude Ghana has lost one of its first volunteers. Mr Ali Paul Bruno died on 11 October 2015 after a short illness. He passed on at the age of 26. He celebrated his 26th birthday on October 5, 2015.
Mr Bruno was a former student of the University of Education, Winneba who graduated with a second class upper division in 2014. He completed his national service in August 2015.
Mr. Wonderful Basie Ghartey, director of Shape Attitude Ghana and his team paid a second visit to the University Practice South Inclusive Primary School in Winneba on September 16, 2015 as part of the sensitisation drive in schools for environmental cleanliness. The visit was a follow up of the first one he made on June 24, 2015 when he promised the pupils of follow visits to continue the discussion on littering and keeping the environment clean.
On September 13, 2015, Shape Attitude Ghana presented a trash bin to the Ebenezer Methodist Church in Winneba. The director of Shape attitude Ghana, Mr. Wonderful Basie Ghartey who presented the item indicated that the donation was to remind individuals present at the congregation on the need for environmental cleanliness. He cited that, usually when persons found creating waste or littering are approached, their first excuse is “they would clean up later”. Most often as he has observed, they leave the premises without tiding up.
Ms. Angela Karmand, a staff at the Headquarters of the World Health Organisation and Ms Anne Buckley a retired staff of WHO and UNAIDS donated CHF2.000 (Two thousand Swiss francs) and Euro1,000 (One thousand Euros) respectively to Shape Attitude Ghana in August 2015. The total amount is about US$3,200. The two are friends and former colleagues of the founder of Shape Attitude Ghana, Mr. Wonderful Baisie Ghartey.
