Charity work in Ngoswani '

Ngoswani is a maasai village located in Loita en-route Maasai Mara national park. Our activity for the weekend will be ,
1. Environmental Awareness
In as much as the Government of Kenya imposed a ban on plastic bags you still find the remnants of old plastic bags around Ngoswani center and other items of rubbish such as plastic bottles and paper. We are going to hold a talk on environmental awareness at the school and then conduct a clean up exercise in the area ( We will have to buy garbage bags & disposable gloves in advance)
Not sure if there is a way plastic bottles could be recycled into building material for manyatta's- Anyone who can advise?
2) School Library
The school has a library that need books. It will be great if we can all get books (2nd hand ones are fine) to donate towards the school library
