Youth Take Part in Nature Clean-up and Health Day

USAID’s Together for Health project, in collaboration with Turkmenistan’s National Red Crescent Society, conducted an ecology and health promotion event in a natural area approximately fifty kilometers from Ashgabat. Twenty-eight youth competed to see who could collect the most garbage. Afterwards, they took part in a fun and interactive health refresher training including games, brainstorming exercises and small group discussions covering the importance of healthy life choices, nutrition, physical activity, and safety while enjoying the outdoors.
