Street children of Ukraine | Photographer: David Gillanders

Street children of Ukraine | Photographer: David Gillanders | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

In 2000 I was travelling through Russia and other parts of the former Soviet Union developing a project on the transmission of HIV through intravenous drug use. I stumbled upon a group of young kids who were being chased from a McDonalds restaurant by a very aggressive restaurant manager. I intervened to prevent the manager beating the kids on the street. The kids had been removing leftovers from empty tables. This act led me into an underground world where young children live and die in the most squalid and horrible conditions I have ever experienced. Orphans, runaways, wee broken souls fending for themselves in a cruel and unforgiving world.- David Gillanders

Exploitation of Child Labour | Photographer: Fernando Moleres

Exploitation of Child Labour | Photographer: Fernando  Moleres | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

Across the world, millions of children do extremely hazardous work in harmful conditions, putting their health and lives at risk. Their education, personal and social development is compromised by long working. They live with their infancy stolen, without a minimum possibility to develop their potentialities or possibilities of choice. The worst forms of child labour must be eradicated just now and governments, international institutions must push in this direction.

Child labour in the coalmines of India | PHOTOGRAPHER : SUZANNE LEE

Child labour in the coalmines of India | PHOTOGRAPHER : SUZANNE LEE | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

The day SUZANNE LEE walked into the minefields of Jharia, in Dhanbad town, of the state of Jharkhand, India, I changed.

SUZANNE LEE went to Dhanbad with an idea in mind to document the families of coal miners who lived above brittle ground with a century-old inferno just beneath the surface. She was stunned by what she saw, the conditions were terrible… and the mines were filled with children, sent out to work in the mines as early as 5AM every day.

His seriesWhat We Conjure was made with an 8×10 view camera, and adds to the great lineage of photographers like Emmet Gowin and Nicholas Nixon who have documented those most dear to them.

SCHOOL FOR LESS FORTUNATE | Photographer: ALTAF QADRI

SCHOOL FOR LESS FORTUNATE | Photographer: ALTAF QADRI | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

07 November 2012

New Delhi, India

Every morning, children from nearby slums arrive in small groups, barefoot and carrying mats and brooms and start cleaning a portion of a land under a metro rail bridge, which will be their school for the rest of the morning. Rajesh Kumar Sharma, along with his friend, founded the free school for underprivileged children under a metro bridge a year ago. He teaches at least 45 children every day. Sharma, a 40-year-old father of three from Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, was forced to drop out of college in his third year due to financial difficulties. He didn't want other children to face the same difficulties, so he decided to start the free school.

 

He persuaded local laborers and farmers to allow their children to attend his school instead of working to add to the family income. He prepares these children for admission to government schools and hopes to equip them with the tools necessary to overcome their poverty. Millions of dollars are given to fund the education of poor children in India, however it often doesn't reach them because of corruption and arduous administrative procedures.
