quality Resin bust kit "Cobalt Boy": What's price?
According to an UNICEF report, almost 40,000 children wash the rocks in polluted pools to clean the precious mineral necessary for high-tech consumption. Rare earths, as they are called, are extracted by small artisan companies. All the families involved in the extraction of the minerals do not send their children to school and make them work ...
A chilling statistic shows that more than 65% of children between the ages of 8 and 12 worked in the mines.
All of us today make extensive use of technological products such as cell phones, tablets, computers, batteries, usb cards etc ... Very few of us are aware of the origin of cobalt and the new slaves thanks to which it is obtained.
We at Scientificmodels cannot change this situation, but we can, through this bust, make the problem known.
Thanks to your contribution, we have decided to donate around € 10 for each bust sold.
But where will the money go?
As already done for the COVID doctor, the same company will ensure that this money is delivered, without intermediaries, to the interested parties ....
Here is the story of the Harambee Ethiopia project:
The Harambee Ethiopia project is run by a small group of volunteers. It is part of the Eccomi non-profit association (www.eccomi.org), linked to MASCI (Italian Catholic adult scout movement). It operates in Gassa Chare, a town of a few thousand inhabitants in the Dawro region, in southwestern Ethiopia, about 600 km from the capital Addis Ababa. The land on which it works has been granted by the Ethiopian state to the local scout association, with which the Harambee project operates (coordinates for google maps: 7.015167, 37.270918)
Among the many projects that are carried out fundamental are the lessons on hygiene, safety in the use of electricity, safety in the use of fires, information on HIV, etc.)
The group of volunteers runs a nursery school that prepares younger children for the first elementary grades and which also serves to disseminate our educational initiatives to families.
10 € will be donated to this association ... to help them in the management projects of the camp.
