description
The quality of our environment determines the quality of life in us. This is so because every aspect of our life is dependent on the environment. Access to decent communities for better life is a fundamental human right which no section of society ought to deprive of. Unsanitary conditions negatively affect our social and health status, indirectly decline our economic gains and psychologically oppressed our self-esteem and progress. A clean community is a free community with lots of transformational and progressive benefits. These progressive benefits, which comes along with proper sanitation practices are what the Centre for Environmental Research and Policy Analysis –(CERPA) endeavor to promote in the Ghanaian society. Clean Communities for Better Lives is a program designed by CERPA to address community sanitation challenges and promote positive environment practices by carefully taking into consideration, complexity of underlying factors of poor community sanitation in Ghana. We focus at going into the local communities to mobilizing community members through opinion leaders and established associations to join hands for cleaning exercises. By involving community members, opinion leaders, and traditional authorities, we intensify the desire to promote proper sanitation and hence dwarf any adverse consequences which may result from poor community sanitation. We are much aware about the fact that, it is not enough to go into communities to mobilize people for clean-up exercises in an attempt to find lasting solutions to poor community sanitation. This activity, though is helpful and bring sanitary in these communities, it is short live and unsustainable. Our Clean Communities for Better Lives program therefore introduces an effective sanitation and environmental education as a complement to our community clean-up exercises.
