Farewell Recycle ITPosted: May 17, 2012
Don’t panic! The project isn’t going anywhere but forward inshaAllah. Its me who’s leaving.
To enhance the abilities of young Bahraini youth, and equip them with the skills needed to be financially independent, through a national and practical training program that promotes environmental preservation and optimum utilization of Information Technology.
After serving as the awareness leader for nearly 3 years, I find myself saying goodbye to the project’s team members. Being involved in the project during its early stages has without a doubt developed my skills and broadened my knowledge in the field.
I’ve learned for instance the horrible effects of burning electronic waste on the environment, and on us humans! Did you know for example that lead contained in CRTs can cause damage to the central and peripheral system and kidneys? Scary stuff!!
I’ve also had the opportunity to hone my presentation skills by dealing with stage fright and being able to enjoy giving presentations to large crowds. I was also given the opportunity to learn and implement a long term awareness plan, that involved various different activities targeting nearly all components of society.
This is the benefit of volunteer work. Learning while helping, and sharing a smile.
I’m sure success will be Recycle IT’s destiny, as an astounding group of young minds stand behind it, along with a team of advising expertise. Perhaps we will work again together in the future.
