Poop on Poverty - Why Poverty? (English version)

18,668 views 1 year ago
INDIA: Great photo opportunity or harsh reality? For more on this and teaching resources linked to the film, go to www.whypoverty.net

Every winter Pushkar in India holds a seven-day religious festival and the world's biggest camel fair. With around 25,000 camels in town, you can expect a lot of camel droppings.
And these droppings provide an opportunity -- a chance for poor families to save money on firewood and other fuels by collecting the dung, drying it out and using it to cook their food.
It's not the easiest job for the women who collect these droppings, they have to deal with the unpredictable nature of the camels and run the gauntlet of tourists photographing them as they go about their work.

Director: Vijay Jodha
Producer: Pramod Mathur
Produced by Steps International
