Nigerian Immigrants Who Sweep The Streets Of Italy In Order To Survive Get International Attention

Thursday, 17 August 2017

akpraiseNigerian immigrants have gotten international attention after volunteering to sweep the streets in Italy.

According to reports, it’s hard to find a job if one is in the process of claiming asylum but this group of Nigerians living in a migrant camp in Rome have started a voluntary street sweeping collective.

The sweeping collective was founded by Wisdom and Osas, who came up with the idea because they had no money but did not want to beg on the streets.

In an audio interview with BBC, the Nigerians revealed that they’ve been in Italy for nine months and decided to sweep the streets rather than remaining idle in the migrant camp. They revealed that they are more than 300 Nigerian guys sweeping the streets as people give them money to appreciate their work.
