In had rained solid for 10 days prior to my arrival and so the falls were at their most spectacular. Standing on the elevated viewing platform I was able to shoot this school group who stood transfixed, emphasizing the incredible size of the falls.” (Photo and caption by Ian Kelsall)

Child Labor. Bangladesh
Child labor is not a new issue in Bangladesh as children here remain one of the most vulnerable groups living under threats of hunger, illiteracy, displacement, exploitation, trafficking, physical and mental abuse. Although the issue of child labor has always been discussed, there is hardly any remarkable progress even in terms of mitigation. 17.5 percent of children aged 5-15 are engaged in economic activities. Many of these children are engaged in various hazardous occupations in factories.

#35!!!! I live in a small town with only about 5,000 people. We all know each other by name or face so these pics hit HARD. I forget sometimes how big the world really is. I CAN NOT express in words how blessed I am. I know the world is a BIG wide place, but these pics just make me soooooo sad that I ,in my everyday luxury, forget how blessed I am. I want nothing more, than to, live to give and love to bless others. I thank Izismile for reminding me of my mission.
