Our project is achieved by a "Buy One Give One" model. This is where every time someone buys one of our menstrual cups (new name coming soon!) we will give one to a person in need. Organisations can then apply to us via our website for free cups to hand out to those who they think would benefit from owning one. This project officially launches on the 3rd of July 2017.
It is a film documentary project that will be divided in chapters. The first one will deal with food and energy inputs and how this energy is processed by the urban ecosystem, nurturing the whole bunch of especies that live and interact in the ecosystem. The project will be produced in July 2017 and we will need a group of collaborators for that matter. Volunteers interested in film making and our environment, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
We are building a garden tower out of repurposed goods. We will be learning about permaculture systems to help build a sustainable, thriving garden. Our goal is to keep our garden producing food throughout the year.
KYE-YAC will once again team up with FIRST, an organization created by world renowned engineer and scientist, Dean Kaman. FIRST is an acronym for: (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology.) KYE-YAC will support FIRST teams in the World robotic competition by raising funding to help get a regional champion team to Houston to compete against international teams. Our support will allow a local/regional team to learn valuable STEM and life skills. They will also be eligible for over $50 million dollars in scholarships.
Our team of volunteers will assemble at the Jackson House and begin to cook and package meals. Once the preparation process is finalized, the packed lunches will be distributed to impoverished members of the community.

Through this project, we are looking to promote sustainable living in the city of Camden through the distribution of free produce, in a city labeled as a "food desert" during recent years. We are looking for cost effective and recyclable options to grow our produce, while educating members of the community about agriculture around the world, how different cultures depend on agriculture, how individuals in different environments face abuse, how climate change is affecting the world and how we can innovate change.
This project will engage students on a local environmental issue of their choice and together they will create a performance piece as an awareness campaign for the community.
In order to successfully reach our desired goal, much effort will have to be put forth! We will start by educating ourselves on the composting basics and school regulations on waste. After researching, we will communicate with appropriate school staff to educate them about the purpose of our project. Next, we intend on setting specified days dedicated to putting out collection buckets during lunch to assist and educate school peers on how to separate waste (compost,recycling,waste) in an interactive and compelling way to ensure full captivation and involvement in composting.
