Campaign Status

Ongoing Offline: The campaign is currently ongoing offline and, thus still in the process of collecting funds. 


The campaign aims to set up waste collection points, conduct community outreach, and launch an education program to raise awareness among 450 people (250 women, 200 men) about proper waste management, benefiting directly and indirectly 60,000 people (27,000 women, 21,000 men, and 12,000 children).


Did you know that in the Kaleri and Moduganari communities of Maiduguri, approximately 12,000 children are at risk of contracting diseases like diarrhea, malaria, and respiratory tract infections due to improper waste management? This not only jeopardizes their health but also harms the environment. In all of these, children are particularly vulnerable, with over 4,500 cases and 70 deaths from cholera reported in just one month last year in Maiduguri alone, and the numbers continue to rise. Urgent action is needed to address this critical issue. Your support can make a life-saving difference for these children.

In Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria, the lack of proper waste management is causing myriad devastating effects on communities with dire consequences. The air is polluted, water sources are contaminated, and drainages and waterways are clogged, resulting in the widespread of diseases like cholera, malaria, and frequent flooding.

Thick, polluted air from burning waste and decaying organic matter poses serious health risks to residents. Water sources essential for drinking and cooking are contaminated with hazardous waste, endangering lives and contributing to the spread of diseases like cholera, malaria, and typhoid.

Also, the accumulation of waste in drainages and waterways has severe consequences, often leading to blockages that exacerbate flooding during rainy seasons. These floods not only destroy shelters but also create breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitos, increasing health risks.

The situation is particularly dire for vulnerable populations including women and children who are disproportionately affected by the health and environmental impacts of improper waste management. Without intervention, these communities will continue to suffer.


To address this challenge, we are launching a campaign to raise funds to support waste management projects in eight locations within Kaleri and Moduganari communities of Maiduguri, Borno state. The project will enhance waste management services by establishing waste collection and recycling points in some selected areas and training community members on waste management practices. 

We intend to solve this challenge by implementing a comprehensive waste management plan, including waste collection, sorting, recycling, and disposal.

Community members will be trained in waste management practices and will be actively involved in the implementation of the project.

Additionally, awareness campaigns will be conducted to educate the community about the importance of proper waste management and the impact of waste on our health and the environment. 

With your support, CASFOD is embarking on a project to support over 60,000 people, including women and children in Kaleri and Moduganari communities. We will establish waste collection points, community outreach, and an education program that will be carried out to raise awareness about the importance of proper waste management, including organising campaigns to educate residents on waste reduction, segregation, and recycling techniques. We will carry out waste collection and disposal, community clean-up campaigns, recycling, and environmental awareness programmes.

Join us in making a difference. Our crowdfunding campaign is up, and we need your support to achieve our goal of creating cleaner, healthier, and empowering communities. Together, we can make a lasting impact on lives and save our planet.
