Matabeleland Institute for Human Rights has trained and assisted the Bulawayo waste buyers to be organized and formulate a Bulawayo Waste Buyers Association which is inclusive of males and females in order to protect and promote the rights of waste buyers and waste pickers.
MIHR has capacitated the waste buyers on human rights and assisted them to formulate a Waste Buyers Association and also develop their own Association Constitution. The Constitution will guide the operations of the waste buyers association.
The formulation of the waste buyers association will ultimately contribute to the protection and promotion of the rights of female waste pickers whom MIHR is working with under the Bulawayo Waste Café project and who have also organized themselves under the Bulawayo Female Waste Pickers Association through MIHR intervention.
