Children ride on a front loader. The children of the Phou family scavenge in the dump almost every day to earn money for school fees and to supplement the family's meager budget. Their father, who worked as a garbage truck worker, lost his job when malaria made him miss 3 days of work. The boys are able to earn about $0.35 each for several hours of work.
