Recycling Ideas
spacer

Unsolicited World Bank reports are recycled into glove puppets.

In villages and regions in India, and indeed around the world where there is a high percentage of illiteracy, traditional forms of communication are very much alive and still a major source of socioeconomic messages.

In what we would classify as a 'transfer of technology' from traditional string puppets made of wood for a very small audience showing myths and legends of kings and queens, the Barefoot College has moved to glove puppets made of recycled paper that hundreds could see, dealing with powerful issues: why you should send your child to the night schools, the importance of collecting rain water, or the struggle for minimum wages.
