Omar Al Nawaisheh, 26 Ghor

Gray Water Project

Omar leads the Gray Water Project, an initiative that seeks to preserve precious natural resources. To date, the project has engaged residents in southern Ghor to recycle their gray water and use irrigation systems that utilize rainwater. Omar has designed a home garden that uses gray water for multiple agricultural practices and has created projects for schools that collect rainwater. This year, he will conduct a field survey to determine the top 10 schools to benefit from gray water production, and will then create gardens at these schools. Omar seeks to expand his initiative's projects to mosques and other public places.
