May 23, 2017: Information Education Campaign

From our WACS study conducted during our third exposure, it was found out that approximately 85-90% of the households in Barangay Venus generated Biodegradable Waste (composed of leaves, food leftovers etc). 

This exposure, we were tasked to focus more on recycling the Biodegradable waste into fertilizers. Thus, we were to educate the people of Barangay Venus about Pit Composting.

On the first week of our primary survey, this exposure, it was found out that 95-100% of the households in Venus is now practicing Waste Segregation as from our last exposure's inititative. Many households had sacks for segregation of wastes namely "Malata" and "Dili Malata" but only some practices Pit Composting and only a few have little idea about the benefits of constructing a Compost Pit and the proper way of constructing such for future use as fertilizer.

May 23, 2017 is the day when we started our information dissemination campaign at Purok Mars. It was simultaneous with the PhilHealth Profiling of the Barangay Health Station with the PHN and BHWs. 

Mothers, primarily, have participated during our campaign wherein we educated the families on the proper way of constructing a Compost Pit.
