ZIMBABWE EZEKIEL GUTI UNIVERSITY
INTRODUCTIONAs part of learning and community responsibility the Department of Social Work engaged many stakeholders in a joint effort to raise awareness on environmental cleanliness and demonstrate the idea by cleaning identified hot spots for litter. The effort to engage in the clean-up exercise was inspired by the International Social Workers Day (ISWD) theme for this year. The theme for 2018 commemorations is ‘Professional Social Work, Community and Environmental Sustainability.’ It is a relevant theme as social work interventions all over the world are under siege from unstable climatic conditions accentuated by global warming which is perpetuated by unsustainable environmental activities. The clean-up joint initiative, which had an educational thrust, was carried out on Saturday 2 June 2018 in the CBD of Bindura town.Leading by example……National Association of Social Work Students President (NASWS) ZEGU Branch, Timothy Chimwaza (in cap) prepares to help a colleague lift the metal bin to empty in the awaiting truck.

It is the people who cause the littering problem, and let the people solve it!!!!
