CASH IT! launched in Katamanso, Accra with the opening of the CASH IT! Recycling Plant in 2018.
CASH IT! Social Enterprise
The ASASE Foundation will create jobs in the community while bringing entrepreneurship opportunities for women who want to engage in plastic recycling.
CASH IT! was the ASASE Foundation’s first project and is supported and managed by ASASE through the capacity-building period. The ASASE founders, the project officer, and their partners are providing the necessary technical and business management training for aspiring entrepreneurs to run the recycling plant and grow the business for profit.
Once profitable, the CASH IT! Recycling Plant will spin off as a stand-alone social enterprise and the women entrepreneurs owning it will give to the community a percentage of their profit, for a community project.
Project CASH IT! offers women entrepreneurs the opportunity to cash in the value of plastic waste currently littered, for their own and their families benefit and also for the benefit of their community.
The first CASH IT! Recycling Plant was launched in the Katamanso district in the Greater Accra Region!
