Initially, he volunteered at an institute; he saw scraps like thrown away chairs and tables were thrown away, which is a threat to the environment. He began this workshop and hired three workers to collect trash and recycle them. The project funded by himself and he dreams of expanding in the future. He hopes that the project will grow more and he gets support from authorities, the cabinet, the presidency or civil society, and that will be able to hire hundreds of workers, not restricted to three.
