Community where women earn money from waste
Man makes it rain on the street, throws wads of money for people, masquerade joined in collecting money on video
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported on a community in Nigeria where women earn money from garbage.
With her craft village in Imafon, Ondo State, Durian was able to show rural women how to make bamboo handicrafts, skin care products from cocoa pud husks. They also teach women how to turn fabric waste into bags and clothes.
Durian is endowing these women with what the late South African statesman Nelson Mandela described as the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world: education.
Their adult literature courses equip women with communication, leadership, teamwork, accounting, and other knowledge and skills needed to drive change. Children are not left out either, as they also offer them learning opportunities.
