Bulawayo Female Waste Pickers Get PPEs

One Hundred and Fifty members of the Bulawayo Female Waste Pickers Association from Ngozi Mine, Trenance, Cowdray Park, Pumula Old, Pumula South, Pelandaba West, Magwegwe and Lobengula have received PPEs that include branded worksuits, gumboots, branded sunhats and waste picking gloves – in an effort by Matabeleland Institute for Human Rights (MIHR) to enhance a gender inclusive and human rights based waste picking industry in Zimbabwe.

The PPEs distribution is part of MIHR’s Bulawayo Women Waste Café project and the 150 members who have received PPEs have undergone training on human rights, gender, digital skills monitoring of human rights violations, economic literary, social mobilization and civic engagement.
