Who We Are

Cans for Kids is a non-profit organization based in Nassau, the Bahamas, that raises funds for schools and youth organizations through the recycling of aluminum cans.

The three main goals of the organization are to:
Reduce the amount of solid waste that ends up at landfills,
Enlighten the public on the long-term benefits of recycling, and
Raise funds for kids in the Bahamas.

Our hope is that the next generation of Bahamian children will make recycling commonplace.
So join us in doing something good for the environment while helping the children of the Bahamas. We're proud of being able to do something good for the environment while helping the children of the Bahamas.

OUR MISSION

Help the children and youth of the Bahamas raise money for their schools and programs through the collection of aluminum cans. Raise awareness about the environment amongst children and youth in the Bahamas. Support the children and youth of the Bahamas in adopting environmentally responsible practices.

PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS

R.E.A.C.H. (Resources and Education for Autism and related CHallenges) aims to provide parents in the Bahamas with comprehensive knowledge and tools for working with individuals with autism and related neurobiological disorders. Cans for Kids has assisted R.E.A.C.H. with their annual summer program for children with autism and related challenges.

HOW IT WORKS

Schools and youth organizations are provided with large containers for their collected aluminum cans. Once the containers are full, Cans for Kids picks up the collected cans and drops them off at Wastenot Ltd.'s premises. Cans for Kids also has drop-off locations throughout the island where the general public can bring their aluminum cans - see CFK Locations.
