Dumpsite of Hope

Nairobi, Kenya Current Affairs July 19 @ 6:19pm

Dandora dumpsite is the largest dumpsite in Nairobi and poses a health risk to the people living in the dumpsite’s surroundings. To some it is a gold mine that has provided hope and daily bread for them. Some families have used the dumpsite to make ends meet and to generate income to give their children a brighter future by paying for their education. This is not done easily since generating income from the dumpsite comes with many risks other than health implications of digging through the garbage.
