Results

The project led to membership growth, brand visibility through Newspaper articles and Social Media (Facebook, instagram, twitter). JCI Capital members also participated in Climate Action workshops that were facilitated by the Ministry of Environment Water and Climate thereby understanding technical aspects of Climate Action. Members were also impacted with skills of project management, administration as well as the application of the ACF in projects.
High School students were impacted with more knowledge on SDG 13: Climate Action through monthly quiz sessions, the students were also taught on Environment Conservation. JCI Capital donated bins and the school has since adopted the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle culture to help promote a clean environment at the school. The Green My World Project also held a Provincial Quiz Competitions with schools in Harare on Climate Action.
