Part of Schools and Favorites
The children ragpickers often have no other choice but to help their parents in picking up the trash they process and resell to foreign companies. Most of them have received no formal education and are hence incapable of escaping that vicious circle. Some associations have understood that even though it may be impossible to prevent children from working it is nevertheless vital that they be given access to education.
If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!
... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)
