XSProject is working to reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of Jakarta’s trash picker communities through education and the design of products from waste. By creating new livelihood opportunities for the very poor XS reuses waste picked straight from the waste stream before it is burned or buried in landfills. The lively informal sector of thousands of impoverished trash pickers are the vanguard of Jakarta’s waste removal process, going door to door, taking anything that can be sold for recycling. XSProject buys waste materials from them that cannot be recycled, creating new income flows. Our XSEducation program provides trash pickers’ children with education giving them a path out of poverty, away from trash heaps and disease. Their products embody environmental and social care.

To better understand their work and how they are breaking the cycle of poverty please watch this video:
