“This video is about street kids because:
• Streets kids are under a lot of mental pressure;
• They lose the chance to get an education;
• The likelihood that they will be recruited by insurgent groups and gangs is high;
• They should play but they work.
There are thousands of kids on the street who make a living by begging, waxing shoes, washing cars and much more.”
