Photographer's Note

From www.ilo.org:

"According to the new estimates, there are some 250 million children 5-14 years old who are toiling in economic activity in developing countries. For close to one-half of them (or 120 million), this work is carried out on a full time basis, while for the remaining one-half it is combined with schooling or other non-economic activities. Among school going children, up to one-third of the boys (33%) and more than two-fifths (42%) of the girls are also engaged in economic activities on a part-time basis. "

Personnaly, I think, instead of a very isolated life, small responsibilities, small works help to improve children's individuality.

Unfortunately, for children, in many parts of the world, the meaning of 'to work' begins form 'cheap labour' and tends toward to 'prostitution'. The worst, that is not a result of cruel parents, but a result of inevitable parents.

And this is one of the usual truths of the world.
