Plastic Oceans Foundation engages people of all ages, in all social situations, to understand the danger of continuing to perceive plastic to be disposable. Once they become aware of the ultimate threat to human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment. Plastic Oceans Foundation plans to tackle this issue, through an awareness campaign using film and media – the documentary feature film, A Plastic Ocean.
The aim of Project Dignity is to reduce absenteeism and dropout rates in schools and increase opportunities for girls to complete their education with dignity.
Subz Pants and Pads were created to reduce the rate of absenteeism and school drop outs among young girls.
Subz Pads are eco-friendly, re-usable sanitary pads which clip onto ladies underwear and do not need to be disposed of. They are simply washed and dried in the privacy of the home and re-used the next day.
The Baby Home
The Peace Agency runs and administers a safe haven for abandoned and orphaned babies and babies given up for adoption. As a part of this project, we use the media to promote and advocate adoption as an integral part of the family planning process, rather than plan ‘b’ for those that can’t conceive.
Wollies Animal Project

Their motto has always been to educate and help prevent unwanted litters. In doing so they are saving thousands of lives’ and helping to prevent neglect, abuse and abandonment of animals. The project is on-going and every week dedicated volunteers transport animals to their vet to be sterilised. Wollies provide food and shelter for hundreds of animals and are in dire need of pet food donations.
