Shirikisha Civic Organization of East Africa (SCO EA) is a civil society organization and a collaborative network of social impact-focused, non-profit community groups working to increase civic engagement & social impact in historically and systemically excluded communities of East Africa by promoting community-based learning experiences that address issues of public concern through building mutually beneficial partnerships.

The entire network under the SHIRIKISHA CIVIC ORGANISATION OF EAST AFRICA-SCOEA engaged in the celebrations of World Cleaning Day with the major events in Kenya under the Keep Africa Clean initiative that was launched last year.

World Cleanup Day usually takes place over 1 day in September each year and it was celebrated on 16th September 2023

On this day our members and volunteers worldwide will come together to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our rivers, forests, and streets.

SCO EA always encourages as many people as possible within East African communities to join in. Not only is this a way for us to directly and immediately improve our local environment, but it is also a great opportunity to connect with different groups and individuals and make new friends.

The National Coordinator in Kenya reported that as a sub-Saharan-based organisation, SCO EA is pleased to take part in the world celebrations because they know first-hand that community cleanups are an excellent way to create a cleaner, more sustainable planet.

” We are thankful to have the chance to partner with community members and local organizations to get involved and have a meaningful impact on several lives in Africa”, the Coordinator added.
