David on his NGO work in Nepal

David posted here about his work with NGO World Education Nepal.

World Education provides alternative education for child labourers or those in danger of becoming child labourers. David visited a carpet factory, a brick factory, saw transportation workers in action, visited “entertainment” workers (sex trade workers), porters (carrying 25 kg of rock all day), stone cutters and others. They were aged about 9-16 years old. And each one of them works harder in a day than I do in a week. They earn about 50 cents per day, maybe a dollar.

The pictures’ usage rights belong to World Education, but those that are around us may get a glimpse of some of them if they ask nicely.
