Alcindo Soares grew up with dreams of becoming a professional athlete. But on his home island of Cape Verde, there was no indoor gym available to him, so instead he exercised daily on the beach. As he was working out one day, he had an epiphany. He realized he could do something useful with the junk that would wash up on the beach. So he began collecting the trash, cleaning it off and using it to build a gym for his community.
