Sherry Zhang visited Indonesia and reports on Bantar Gebang: South East Asia's largest landfill and home to 3000 famillies. She interviews Resa Boenard: the founder of the kingdom of BGBJ, an NGO to support the women and children living on the landfill with life skills and education:
This week Sherry focused on the workers at Banter Gebang, and the pressure they face in a dangerous environment.
Next week will be on the children, family and women who live on the landfill and Resa shares her hopes for the educational suuport she hopes to set up for the children of BGBJ.
Following that, Sherry will be looking at the waste management process in Indonesia, as an environmental concern but also as a source livelihood for these people.
Finally, New Zealand exports 13,800 tonnes of our plastic to Indonesia. So what does it mean when New Zealand sell their plastic to developing nations, to maintain the clean green image?
All this coming up in the series on Bantar Gebang.
