International Samaritan supports families living in garbage dump communities, or communities that are located within and around, and dependent on, the world's unregulated garbage dumps. These communities are especially vulnerable because they face barriers to access to education, stable employment, safe housing, and healthcare while also facing extremely high rates of poverty, poor health conditions, and violence. According to UNESCO:
According to the Worldwide Waste Index, more than 15 million people have been confirmed to live in these conditions around the world. They have also said that, due to limitations in collecting data, this number is likely wildly below the actual number who likely actually live in these communities. International Samaritan currently is supporting 621 families living in these conditions. Our goal is to reach more, focusing on community-level change.
For IntSam's Global 5K, our goal is to help reduce the barriers to education for the students we currently support by giving students access to tablets and internet access as communities shift to digital learning in the wake of COVID-19.
