In July 2013, the youth from Pacifico de Villa, who participated in the Leaders of the Villa program, took a walk throughout their community to learn more about their community.
During the walk around the community, the youth noticed excess garbage, and became concerned about the way that garbage was accumulating in the community.
The youth were concerned that the dumpsters were reaching full capacity.
The youth noticed that the nearby river was filling up with garbage.
In response, the youth worked with Solidarity in Action volunteers to develop the "End Garbage Now" campaign - "Basta de Basura".
During the "Basta de Basura" campaign, the youth led presentations for community members, in which they explained the consequences of improper waste management, and urged the community to take better care of the community.
The "Basta de Basura" campaign encouraged community members to take better care of the community through displays and presentations.
Community members and parents of the youth attended the campaign to learn more about ways to keep their community clean.
