Paulette Steele's curator insight, February 16, 2015 6:14 PM

A wonderful insight into communication and how most of us don't use it enough. What's the point of having knowledge if you don't share it through communicating it to others!

In the midst of e-waste traffickers, Africans are endeavouring to find ways to breathe new life into these discarded materials.

8A Nathan's curator insight, February 27, 2015 2:34 AM

In dumps all over Africa,  Africans are taking in what seems like useless E-junk and are finding ways to recycle it. From the large disposal of old technology as Africa moves forward, areas are filled with large amounts of what is junk to some could be worth a lot more after processing takes place. Many unorganized workers go there everyday at risk of their own health for the livelihood of their families. In some places the E-waste is taken to more organized facilitates where decent technology can be sold at stores for large amounts of money, but in other areas it is collected to survive. 


This article helped me understand how Africa is moving forward with technology, and that Africans are resourceful. The article stated that the E-Junk was hidden very well by the government, so it was pretty awesome when poor African families found all this stuff and are being resourceful and making money from it. This article made me sad that people have to do this to gain wealth but it also showed me how productive Africans can be.
