Less than 5km (two miles) from central Nairobi lie the smouldering mountains of rubbish thrown away by the residents and businesses of the Kenyan capital. Dandora is one of Africa's largest dumping and scavenging grounds. Every day thousands of slum dwellers try to eke out a living. This man took nearly three hours to fill his last bag of the day—and he hopes to sell the contents, which are mostly scraps of rubber, for $0.50 (£0.30). Image by Micah Albert. Kenya, 2012.

An exploration of human resilience in Nairobi's Dandora, one of the world's largest urban trash dumps, featuring the photojournalism of Micah Albert. Refreshments and discussion with photojournalist Micah Albert and journalist David Conrad, Pulitzer Center Managing Director Nathalie Applewhite, and Apolis Co-Founders Raan and Shea Parton.
