Bangladesh, street kids in Barisal
Portrait of street kids in Barisal, Bangladesh.
The boys live nearby the Launch Ghat in Barisal. They are homeless, they sleep in sheds or under the bridge and wash themselves in the river. They don't go to school. But they work and they try to get some money by gathering and selling plastic trash. They also work as water carriers or suitcase carriers at the port in Barisal.
Many of them are orphans or they left their family in rural areas because of poverty. When they grow up they probably work as porter on the market or as rickshaw drivers.
