The third and the last day of the activity consisted in cleaning certain areas of town. The work was organized in groups. Accurately based on the schedule we asked for the involvement of the fifth and sixth grades of the secondary schools of the city and with the cooperation of the “Havzi Nela” high school we helped the 11th grade’s students fulfilling the Community Service classes. The members of Outdoor Ambassadors were obviously part of the project. The secondary schools and certain members of OA cleaned the environment surrounding their respective schools. On the other hand, the high school students cleaned some of the neighborhoods in the city. The activity lasted about 2 hours. For this event we had the support of the Municipality, the Department of Education Kukes, the local media and the citizens of Kukes.

The final phase of the activity had to do with the presentation of the project. We, the members of Outdoor Ambassadors, showed our work in the past days to the representatives of the institutions that supported us in the initiative. We had invited the Mayor, the Director of DAR, the directors of the participating schools, the local media, the Peace Corps volunteer Erwin Camia and the old members of the organization but some of them missed the opportunity to watch the presentation for different reasons. However the presentation went very well and we all were praised by the guests. At the end we discussed the near future activities and other projects.
