Sanitation of Urban Markets

I am the president of the urban market town of BAGIRA. In our markets, the mothers do the clean-up twice a week. They sweep, clean the gutters, and remove the weed around the city hangars. Our city does not have a public dump, the members of the committee do the evacuation of waste. We are looking to get a partnership with NGOs dealing with satination eg, RED CROSS that one day took care of it. Sometimes we even negotiate with growersduring the dry season to come and take the waste. Sometimes we lack the means of transport, but the environmental services are interested to clean the town. Throughout the roads, there are pirates markets with fake merchanidse. Nobody takes care of it. They even ignore who make the sacrifice for communal clean up while the authorities are passing through. Our market is comprised of 80 women.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Thank you for sharing your organization with us. The work you do is very difficult, not just labor intensive but also very difficult. Do you have a local government who is affiliated with a NGO that operates out of your country? You have a large group of women and large enough organization. Also try contacting www.unpd.org they may be able to assist.

Kind Regards,
