Important effort, esp. starting with education.
Please however take into account the fact that in low-income regions people must work all-day long just to help their families survive. Thus you need to create financial incentives, be it payment by larger collecting agencies or users; free food or incentives for people to participate in educational programs, etc. Anything that widens these people's bandwith and attention time-span, to be able to learn these important yet new environmental efforts, without creating to much opportunity cost.

excellent idea. The cost is quiet low but be aware that you have not included th total costs, for example, those arising from the whole operation. Is it the cost for the whole project or only for a project during a year? About the rest, be so kind to establish the countries in which this project might be applicable. Certainly Colombia would be one of them but what about Ecuador or Peru?
