PREYO team members participated in the training at the Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT) a youth-led movement of daring social innovators where we learned a lot. That’s when the network with different people started to grow and more ideas were coming in. Some people quitted their projects and joined us because of the efforts we invested in promoting our work and innovative ideas.

Partnering with different innovators and people who have resources including machines and those with knowledge on how to run a recycling business. 

Lessons learned

We have learned that you can start with an idea and focus on producing plastic flakes but as you get into innovation things change and you come to find the market for something you are targeting may be the same but the trick is you have to add something extra in order to win the market. Also, we have learned that to win the market, fundraising technique, networking, and language communication are very important.
