WAMBO means “WASTE MEMBER BASED ORGANIZATION”

WAMBO is a team of people who believe in collectiveness, in challenge, in a better world.

Our goal is a successful, self-sustainable social enterprise of waste pickers along with Common Waste Management principles. We work for representing and alleviating the conditions in which waste pickers live and we accept that any single step we make it doesn’t directly lead οn a magic solution.
