Hundreds of youth spent their Sunday picking up litter on the streets of Bellville.
One of the volunteers, Fezeka Dyushu, said they were raising awareness about climate change through their different campaigns.
“During the week the area has a high density of people and litter accumulates. The Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District company which usually cleans the area permitted us to clean it. Our current campaign, We Are One, is educating young people to take care of their surrounding environment and people. It instils these qualities, which will enable them to be future leaders,” Dyushu said.
The group of 120 volunteers collected about 200 bags filled with litter within 3 hours.
