With journaling, sessions and games the interns learn more about all different aspects of being a Team player and Professional, which will help them a lot in the work with the children.
Internship – Plastic Pollution
06/5/18 12:18 PM
On Sunday was international Earth day to raise awareness about Plastic pollution that it is poisoning the oceans and land, injuring marine life, and affecting our health.
The Internship Project took that as a chance and talked about Plastic Pollution in their training. They looked at the problem of plastic and how it doesn’t decompose.
They also talked about the problem of single-use plastic and what they could personally do to make an impact (eg using reusable bags for shopping and sharing the information with others).
They also used some plastic rubbish and recycled them into containers, toys, jewellery etc. to learn to reuse plastic instead of throwing it away.
