KQB is bringing awareness to Environmental issues
KQB Keep Quseir Beautiful is a project under the Roaya NGO and the primary focus is to bring awareness to the residents on environmental issues, organize community cleanups, and support efforts through festivals and various children activities.
Our original forum was patterned after the “School Camp” project that the Roaya volunteers created. The program targeted the schools with the intention of engaging the students in discussions about the environment and how to care for it. This involved actively showing the students how to cleanup and beautify their school environment through garbage pickup, raking leaves and trimming greenery and/or planting more, repairing various apparatus, and painting murals. The event always ended with a fun activity as reinforcement to the purpose of preserving the environment is a positive and long-lasting endeavor.
KQB continued the success of the “School Camp” with a slightly different format in regard to neighborhoods. A select area is chosen to plan a 3-day event to educate, clean-up and beautify, and then celebrate for the purpose of acknowledging the importance of maintenance.
These events are used as a platform to stimulate the local residents to take action and responsibility to clean their immediate surroundings and support the local sanitation company to Keep Quseir Beautiful. Through donations, KQB has been able to integrate 10 more trash boxes in the town, public billboards, and posters emphasizing the benefits of a healthy and clean environment. All these efforts contribute greatly to our overall mission to Keep Quseir Beautiful.
