In the Smokey Mountain area of Manila, thousands of families rely directly or indirectly on the garbage ‘industry’.
Jobs range from scavenging for recyclable materials to driving bike taxis. The average family income for a family with these jobs is $5 USD/day.
Financial constraints, as well as a lack of educational and social support, mean that many children are unable to complete their education, and in turn, are unable to break the cycle of poverty.
