About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

We have three methods to counter the problems of waste management vermicomposting. 1 - we need to develop training in this area.2 - we need a cultural development .3 - we need economic development plan.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Our solution: education and promotion through the mass media, advertising for production and consumption of vermicompost ---- (market making) ----- vermicomposting at construction sites, institutions, government offices, parks and ... ..
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Waste is an integral part of the social life, each person produces on average 800 grams of waste per day.Today, garbage and waste are one of the main problems for governments, and they spend a lot to keep pollution from waste away from residential and urban centers.Several methods for resolving the problem of waste are on the agenda of governments Including landfill and incineration of waste, and producing compost waste, but the best way for waste management is on-site waste separation and reusing them.If on-site waste separation is given sufficient attention, it can be expected to decrease the current costs of the Municipality to a great extent by recycling 50-60% of wet waste and reusing them in production of home composting .
Sustainability

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Difference between our solution and other solutions competitors (producers of waste compost):Green Organic=Convert wet waste into one of the best fertilizers, Appropriate advertising, finding the right market. Regular compost fertilizer importing companies=High volume fertilizer production with low price, Low quality fertilizer.Chemical fertilizer importing companies=High production, Chemical hazards to agricultural soil

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Research to set up vermicompost production site in Kabul - preview raw material resources of the Kabul (the percentage of perishable waste generated daily and livestock waste sources and their production rate) prices of livestock waste - transportation costs of raw materials – find construction site - site preparation - shopping and garbage into worm-eating - preparing the bed for the worms - worms feed - apply for a license from AISA - Exhibition - attempt to import 200 kilograms of worms multiply in the site 500 square meters - search to find donors and investors - Introduction of product (vermicompost fertilizer) to farmers and gardeners - to build greenhouses and agricultural land use fertilizer for organic crops -
