Comments / Narrative

A social system for waste pickers and other marginated groups has been setup by the ANR through Local financing. At present, any waste collector family member can benefit from this social security system and has access to hospital, health care and pension funds. With the increase of critical mass, the system is becoming progressively self-financed.
