New Heroes Summary: Albina Ruiz

Alibina Ruiz was worried about healthcare and environmental caused by garbage in Peru. She came up with an idea of community managed waste systems. The first neighborhood she worked with was El Cono Norte in Lima. She has been really successful in her plan to get trash off of the Peruvian streets. She oversees 20 cites in across Peru. Even though her organization has grown, Ruiz remains central to the operations on the ground. She still visits municipalities overwhelmed by garbage, checks on neighborhoods involved in her program and meets with government officials.
