The Zabaleen are the informal garbage collectors as they collect garbage since they migrated from Upper Egypt to Cairo in 1940. They have been repurposing garbage with great efficiency as they recycle around 80% of the garbage in Egypt. They used to collect garbage from door to door and then head to garbage city where the women start their mission of sifting through the garbage at the early hours of the day.
Thank you for helping the environment and our earth byy recycling and repurposing items which otherwise would have been garbage and effecting the environment. Thank you our donor for helping them do what they are doing in a healthier, safer and more hygienic way. Education is the key word as by encouraging education and knowledge they will evolve in sifting garbage in a healthier way.
It was a pleasure seeing the younger generation of Zabaleen girls sifting through garbage wearing gloves. This is what education does as they are now wearing protective gloves while doing what they usually do but taking protective measures.
Thank you to you our donors for making this possible and helping them to stop the cycle of poverty. Without your help this would not have been possible.
