In the Malian capital of Bamako, donkey carts driven by young men like 19-year-old Arouna Diabate play a vital role battling the fast-growing city's waste problem.
Arouna Diabate, 19, a waste picker, ties his shoelace as he prepares for a walk with his brothers and friends in Bamako, Mali, August 21, 2018. "I won't be a driver of a waste-collecting donkey all my life, but for now people appreciate us because we help clean up the homes of Bamako," Diabate said. LUC GNAGO/REUTERS
