Or, you know what, I think I´ll skip that for today, let me tell you about سعر الذهب عيار 21 اليوم في السعودية La Chureca first…

الاسهم الجديده Ù ÙŠ السوق السعودي La Chureca is the biggest open garbage dump in central america, about 7 km2. It´s hard to tell when people actually began to move there but some people say that the big follow link earthquake in 1972 started everything.

garbage dump

Almost 70% of Managua was left in ruins and huge amount of people were left unemployed. With no other options, people went to the garbage dump, where all the trashes after the earthquake was left, in search of things of value to sell. Some people went home when night was falling, people without a home stayed in La Chureca and by the time, they built their own “houses” in the dump with whatever they could find in the garbage.

Today, 40 years later, they say that about 3.000 people are living in La Chureca. During my year working with the kids and teenagers there I met new people every day. La Chureca is like a small town with it´s own church, school and kinder, just next to the mountains of garbage.

Kids are walking around by themselves all day long while their parents are working under the heating sun from morning to evening. People gather around the back of the dumpster truck, trying to scavenge whatever falls out of it. Mostly they´re collecting plastic bottles or cables, which they burn to get the copper (talking about copper, you should listen to Calle13 – El baile de los pobres). They later sell the stuff to a man buying plastics and metals, for pennies. If you´re lucky you can make about 5-10 dollars a day. Having a couple of kids to feed, you won´t have “mucha plata” left to save up. And even if you do, the risk of being robbed is super high since a lot of robbers live there.

A big problem here is that families are so poor that even their kids has to work to support the family. I’ve seen 5 year old kids going to “work” with their mom and dad. It´s about the worst thing I´ve seen in my life. The same second the kid starts to work, he´s loosing his childhood and opportunity to study and another generation is doomed to spend the rest of their life in the dump.

Watch the video to get a glance of what La Chureca really is. Since the high risk of being robbed I personally don´t have many good photos, I took them all with a cellphone camera. And if you´d like to I´ll share them on the blog one day. Got some really sweet videos with the kids and some really nice videos with the guys playing basketball´n stuff.

Like i said, La Chureca is like a world in its own way. Very few people know about it or the stories from the place. That´s where our clothing brand Dump Tees comes in. We´re telling the stories you’ve never heard before, from people living of less than $5 a day. Amazing stories from real people trying to survive, just like us, through this t-shirt we´re making a better future for us and for young people of La Chureca…
