Sanitation of the Environment Through Cleanliness (SET-C)
BY: EGBUOKPORO CHARLES CHIZITERE
THE BIRTH OF SET-C
My name is Egbuokporo Charles Chizitere. I’m a native of Umuchoke Orji, Owerri North LGA Imo State. I’m a student of Optometry in the College of Medicine and Health Sciences, Imo State University, Owerri. I have always had the burning desire to improve the quality of life of the Nigerian citizens . I am among the few individuals who still believe that positive change could be possible in Nigeria.
There are a lot of areas that need improvement and restructuring if the change we expect in our country would come. These areas include Education, health care, sanitation, job opportunities, youth reorientation, etc.
My admission into the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) in 2016 ignited the pre-existing passion in me to do something for Nigeria.
I decided to work on health care and environmental sanitation. This gave birth to my Community Development Project (CDP)- Sanitation of the Environment Through Cleanliness (SET-C).
SET-C tries to enlighten the general public and most especially students in the high schools and Colleges to embrace the culture of proper waste disposal and also to imbibe healthy habits that will boost good health.
SET-C achieves this by making constructive sensitisations on the need to observe proper waste disposal.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with just a step. Little by little, Nigerians will definitely see the need for environmental Sanitation and of course, the SET-C team will be in line making Nigeria a better place.
