Poverty has forced these children to struggle to live in the slums.
But despite the lack of basic necessities and having to experience hardship in life at an early age, you can find hope in their eyes. If you sit and talk to them even for a little bit, you will hear their untold stories and dreams. I photograph these kids in the landfill as they celebrate their childhood and happiness in this place they called “home”.
