The hard work of the children in Myanmar (11 photos)

The man, who visited Myanmar, decided to tell us about the difficult childhood, the people of this Republic.

Every third child aged 7 to 16 years old working in Myanmar. Moreover, he usually performs the most difficult job. Until recently, child labor is actively used military, thousands of children working as porters in the army, while the soldiers were beaten and raped. During wars military used children as human shields, there were cases when they are released in the minefields for "demining". In the army, the children not only work, but also to serve. The machine gives 12 years. In 2001, a group of child soldiers 13-15 executed 15 women. In Myanmar, about 70,000 soldiers to 18 years. In recent years, under pressure from the international community bloody regime softened a bit, and now the children mostly working in construction. Today Myanmar takes pride of first place in the list of countries using child labor. In second place is North Korea, then Somalia.

A woman with a brick on his head is no surprise at all.

I have visited a number of buildings and all children work.

Almost everything here is done by hand. Techniques very small, can not be said about the people.

They work mostly girls. Hard work give girls from 6 years. She is 8 years old and she drags cement. I tried to raise the bowl, weighs 20 kilograms, or even more.
