The PRISM project (Poverty Reduction of Informal Waste Workers) recently published three videos about their work with waste pickers in Nepal. The video “Education brings hope” talks about the transformative effect of access to formal or non-formal education and skills training. The video “Health risks behind the waste” shows the risks waste pickers face in their daily work. The video “Saving for the future” talks about the financial struggles of waste pickers and how borrowing money at high interest rate is often one of the only options to make ends meet. The PRISM project is being implemented in Kathmandu valley by Practical Action in partnership with CIUD and financial support from the European Union.
