Product Description
Television, computers and video games are not as easy to come by for the poor children of Africa. So, they are challenged to make their own fun. It is not unusual to find a 10 year old who is already a master at using pliers, sewing, and grasping a wire cutters or tin snips. They grow up building their own play things out of garbage that has been thrown away by others that are more fortunate. As they practice these skills they become accomplished folk artists . They begin to realize that the better they get at recycling the more money they can bring in for their family by selling these creations to foreigners. They find amazing ways reuse the garbage of others and make it into something new and exciting.
