Written by Erik Flakoll Alegría. Vimeo. 09/04/2014

Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO), Universidad Centroamericana de Nicaragua (UCA) and La Red de Emprendedores Nicaragüenses del Reciclaje (Red Nica) are collaborating to create an alliance for a baseline study of the thousands of waste pickers/recyclers in Nicaragua, the majority of whom are not heard or considered and remain invisible. This alliance aims to give voice to this important segment of society, which contributes towards environmental protection. Watch video.
