DENR National Capital Region, through its Regional Gender and Development Focal Point System, organized a learning event on Solid Waste Management for 50 Women Barangay Health Workers of BASECO Compound in Tondo, Manila on Wednesday, 27 March 2019.

The learning event is the culminating activity of the DENR National Capital Region prepared in celebration of National Women’s Month and was conducted in partnership with the Simulang Gabay para sa EntrePinay Foundation of Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City.

Ms. Sienna Hera Frejas, member of the foundation, gave a talk on their organization’s program dubbed ‘May Pera sa Basura’ to give the participants ideas on how they can earn extra income by recycling and selling handcrafted environmental friendly products.

EntrePinay also held a mini-bazaar showcasing products made of recyclable materials.

To cap the half-day activity off, the Regional Public Affairs Office facilitated a fun game called ‘Hiwalay kung hiwalay’ where participants try to identify the different types of waste for segregation and disposal.
