Pollution in Bangladesh Leather Tanneries: haz_ALLISONJOYCE__30-copy

10 year old Mohammad Kadirul Islam sorts through animal waste looking for horns. His family pulled him from school one year ago and sent him to Dhaka to start making money after his father was diagnosed with cancer. The 2,000 (about $25) taka he makes a month is sent back home to his mother. Kadirul says that he wanted to stay in school and study to be a teacher. Even though his hands often get damaged with the work he does his employer won't replace the old pair of gloves he wore through.
