ACCRA, GHANA: A 17-year-old boy holds some electric cables that he will melt down in order to extract copper and aluminum. Children in Ghana’s Agbogbloshie slum work 12-hour days and earn one or two Cedis (Ghanaian currency, equivalent to less than €1) rummaging through e-waste in the dumping ground. They burn the materials in uncontrolled fires, which emit toxic fumes.
