Young Post Features Student’s Trash to Cash Project
Ivy Fan and her recycling/ social change project has been featured in the South China Morning Post’s Young Post.
In the ‘Leading Lights’ section of the newspaper Ivy explains more about her project. While collecting she met an 83 year – old woman, Mrs. Lam, collecting tins and cardboard. They started talking to each other and Ivy found out about her family, her situation and discovered that her annual income is less than $11,000.
Ivy completed her Solo E project with more research into recycling and waste management. It was so good that she won a school award and a cash prize of $1,500 which she donated to Mrs. Lam.
