Life Recycled

Chan Chao Loy (or ‘Loy’) is a 12 year old waste picker living in Siem Reap in Cambodia. Having both parents HIV positive, he has decided to pick recycling materials two years ago for helping his family. He also had been eager for buying school materials, bag and a new bicycle. He never skipped any single day for work, which starts from around 4 am to last about 3-4 hours if his school time is set for after noon. If his classes are set in the morning, he works after school. Loy on average earns 1000 riels (0.25 USD) per day, which has enabled him to buy some notebooks and his school bag, but bicycle. (Photo © Lee Yu Kyung 2013)
