What Is XSProject Indonesia?
TRASH TRANSFORMED LIVES CHANGED
We are a social and environmental organization focused on transforming consumer
and corporate waste into products with innovative design
Based in Jakarta, Indonesia, XSProject is a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of poor families living in Jakarta???s trash picker communities.
Indonesia is changing and rural communities are being displaced. People move their families to big cities like Jakarta in search of work. With few financial resources, little education and no documentation, many have found themselves living in over-flowing garbage dumps.
Each day it is estimated there are about 450,000 trash pickers working in this city of 13 million people. They pick through the garbage, exposing themselves to infectious diseases and hazardous waste, looking for anything they can sell. By day\'s end, their efforts might return around US$4 - barely enough to feed their families.
XSProject works directly with the trash picker families living at the Cirendeu open garbage dump in South Jakarta
