Sainath and Sai

Nominated By: Goumbook

All 2022 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

After reading about various environmental issues, Sainath and Sai were inspired to act themselves. They started to see the heaps of plastic and waste which littered their country and damaged marine life. Together, they started a campaign called “PEPC Campaign” (papers, e-wastes, plastics and cans). Through their campaign they educate people on the importance of recycling. Sainath and Sai actively collect recycling in their community, equating to 15.000 kilos collected per month. They have also invented two robots which can remove waste which floats on water. They have also developed an app to support the functioning of their robot. In the future, they hope to start their own organization in order to grow their PEPC Campaign.
