• Sierre Leone cleaned up by Masada Waste Management | The Waste Transformers

    Sierra Leone, is a country that emerged from a decade of civil war which ended in 2002, but left in its wake social unrest and a destroyed social and physical infrastructure. After making strides to rebuild its fragile economy, it was devastated again by Ebola until it was finally declared Ebola free in March 2016 .

Together with our partner, Masada Waste Management, The Waste Transformers are transforming the waste of Freetown into much needed green energy, water and organic fertilizer.

Hazardous fumes from these machines are poisoning the children who trawl through them in search of profit. Each year 8 million containers pass through Antwerp’s port. But with just 4 officers searching for toxic shipments, most illegal containers slip through. ‘"There must be hundreds that we can’'t stop in time,"’ tells one officer. A lot of toxic e-waste ends up in Ghana‘s rubbish tips, such as Agbobloshie. Here children like Kofi and Osman use stones and their bare hands to dismantle old computers. ‘"Our fathers and mothers aren’'t here. We'’ve come here to earn money to take back to our hometown"’ they tell us. "‘For 15 kilos, they’ll give you 30,000 cedis.’" ‘Ghana may have signed all the international treaties banning the import of e-waste but it will decide itself when to apply them.’ VRT – Ref. 4416 Journeyman Pictures is your independent source for the world's most powerful films, exploring the burning issues of today.
