Embedding in the slum known locally as Agbogbloshie, Mago reverses the polarity between the third world and first through a powerful artistic expression that begins to create a new sustainable economy in Agbogbloshie and inspire people all across the world to get involved in being the solution to the global e-waste crisis.
