Man dropping off items at a large donation bin that reads, “ Clothing Drop.” In a classroom, a young African boy wears a second-hand t-shirt from the film Out of Africa.
“Most people know that Africa is poor, dependent, needy. What most people 
 don't know is that the industrialized countries of the north helped to make it that way.”
Secondhand clothing, given away as charity in the western world, is exported to Africa as part of a multibillion-dollar business. T-SHIRT TRAVELS uncovers how international agencies played a key role in directing Zambia's economic policies—leaving the country more impoverished than ever before.
