THE STORY:

I am raising money to propel a personal initiative that I have just started. That is to create a network of organizations around the globe that work to improve the conditions at landfills where a " dump - economy" exists. I have had the good fortune during my career, to work at landfills and with dump workers and organizations dedicated to their social justice in several countries. ( Haiti, India, Guatemala and the US.) It has always been striking that being in the middle of a landfill looks, feels, smells and suffers the same problems in each developing country. The conditions that these poor and oppressed communities face by necessity is horrifying. It is equally amazing the people and organizations who choose this population to assist and support. My goals are to start an organization that can a) Connect the various organizations around the world who work with dump workers to share best practices and support each other b) Provide technical assistance and fundraising support to these organizations c) raise awareness about the plight of this unseen population . Specifically the $4000 will go to a) supporting a technology platform to allow these organizations to connect in the cyber-world. For example we have a facebook page { https://www.facebook.com/dumpworkers/ } and would like to expand to another platform that would facilitate intra-organization communications and information sharing b) direct donations to participating organizations ( currently 1) http://www.safepassage.org/ 2) ( http://www.chintan-india.org/) and 3) (http://www.bredsindia.org/) c) Outreach and fundraising activities.
