UNA Tanzania joined forces with the NGO, Nipe Fagio, for a Beach Clean-up event on 21 September 2019 which is International World Clean-Up Day.
This event was part of the events which marked the kickoff of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Action Week #Act4SDGs. World Cleanup Day is a global social action program aimed at combating the global solid waste problem, including the problem of marine debris.
The next World Clean-up Day is the 19 September 2020. World Clean-up Day is celebrated with litter clean-up and waste mapping activities spanning every time zone.
Nipe Fagio, an NGO, meaning “give me a broom” in Swahili, is a civil society organization founded with the objective to turn Dar es Salaam into a replicable example in the pursuit of sustainable development in East Africa.
