Gioto Garbage Slum is possibly one of the most shocking places in the world. It is exactly as it sounds, a slum inside the garbage dump. Home to 140 families who depend on the garbage itself for survival, both food and shelter. Most children will never attend school. Many will be neglected or abused. There is no way around it, it’s a heart breaking place. And yet within all the rubble there is light. People from both within the community and from outside are lending a helping hand – children now have opportunities to go to school, women have chances to start a business – and the people there are just beautiful. A smile can truly transcend a thousand tears sometimes.
