Waste pickers scavenge through trash to find things they can resell, such as metals, plastic, and cardboard, and for things they can use themselves. Some waste pickers use the materials they find to make jewelry that they then sell. These waste pickers are the poorest of the poor community members who live in our project area. Two of the women are foster parents to children in our Child Sponsorship Program.
Because of your support, waste pickers also receive free healthcare at the Richard Oslund Memorial Clinic.
Your generosity helps these women to better provide for their families. Thank you!
