I  saw a picture in a magazine about a city in a Cairo slum.  After reading the short article that described why garbage was stored on the rooftops of the city I decided to find out more. So here is an article and recording that talks about an environmental project.

I was impressed with the fact that girls are now allowed to learn in the schools. Because the trade  is garbage recycling for the residents they learn how to use Excel spreadsheets.  Interesting.

There is so much work to do, isn’t it?

Read about the Zabaleen and the environmental project.

Also, here is an excellent photography blog with pictures from Cairo.
