We have been in and out of this area for a few months now raising awareness of the health risks of air pollution. We also regularly give out some of our lines of anti-pollution face masks for free to residents to help minimize their exposure to particulate pollutants.


More than 50,000 Ghanaians live in this area, so I reckon we'll be here for some time.

These short films closely look at the "urban mining" of copper and other rare earth metals at the Agbogbloshie e-waste dump and how it could be exposing Accra residents to serious health risks.


The Agbogbloshie e-waste dump is across this section of Sodom and Gomorrah. Both are near the center of Accra, Ghana's capital city.
