Life in a Mexico City garbage dump: Landfills, known as the Basurero, are the location of shack villages where thousands of families live who have no skills, education or training to get a job. These poverty stricken families and children make their living sifting through the garbage by hand... looking for recyclable materials. But they make less than a dollar a day.

The Road to Juan's House is the story of Juan Boca Negra who lives in a shack village on the outskirts of a Mexico City dump with his brothers and sisters. It is a story of hope as he receives education in the hopes that one day he can leave his shack in the garbage dump for a better life.

Medical Teams International & Manos De Ayuda provided food and education for children living in the shack villages around the Mexico City dumps.
