gambia-ypwb-builds-house-with-bottles-a-plastic-bagsThe Young People Without Border (YPWB), a community-based organization in Siffoe Village, Kombo South, has built its resource center in Siffoe Lower Basic School out of bottles and waste plastic bags.

Young People without Borders seeks to encourage young people to actively participate in their own personal development to achieve self-confidence, self-reliance, and self-realization.

The organization operates to prepare youths to take serious measures to the challenges ahead of them and to enable them to fit well in their own societies and effectively play their role as young people in national development endeavors.

The center was built out of 1,920 bottles mainly collected as household refuse, thereby contributing to the reduction of environmental pollution.
