To Work is to Grow. Organised Child Workers and Their Demands

Gerald, Ruben, Neysa and their friends are children and adolescents who work as wheelbarrow pushers at the market and as prayer boys at the cemetery in the region of Cochabamba in Bolivia. They are also part of Bolivia’s working children’s labor union, through which they defend their right to work in front of the authorities and they will present their ideas to the parliament where a new legislature concerning working children is being decided on.
