Children of the Dump

Orphans, destitute, HIV+, vulnerable children – the children in this image live in the city dump. Often an entire single parent family lives in the dump.  Fire burn plastic, rubber, batteries and other carcinogenic trash all day long.  The children learn to roam the dump for the things they can sell, recycle or eat.  There are many organizations working in the dump, others bring people out of the dump, some try to develop work for single mothers, some build schools for the children to attend, others take children from the dump and bring them to children’s homes.   No single organization is equipped to meet all the needs. But all are working to their capacity to make a difference.  That is how it will be done – one child at a time – one single parent at a time - one donor at a time.  Thank you for donating to Expanding Opportunities Street Children Project.
