We are proud to announce that Plastiki Rafiki has won this year’s International School Awards – Community Building Award! The Awards provide the opportunity for international schools to share best practices, creative endeavors, community participation, and innovation. Over 250 international schools apply every year, sharing truly inspiring initiatives. All applications are thoroughly assessed by a panel of independent judges – all experts in international education and based around the world. Plastiki Rafiki was shortlisted for two awards: Environment & Community Building!
Community is at the heart of what we do – bringing together the ISK community as well as the wider Kenyan community through our mission to clean up the environment by empowering communities to promote and monetize grassroots plastic recycling in a self-sustaining manner in Kenya. In addition we could not do what we are doing without the support of the wider plastic recycling community in particular Precious Plastic. We are very humbled by this award and want to thank our community for all the support over the years!
