expand the amount of cultivated hectares and implement an irrigation
system to grow vegetables such as cabbage, tomatoes, and lettuce.

Hirondelle Foundation are working on a documentary about this
community of people who used to live in the city garbage dump and
its efforts to fight poverty. The project coordinator was invited
to lecture in Switzerland at the International Relations Institute
