Jowai, India

12 year old Abdul Kayum (scarf), 15 year old Abdul Haqim (singlet) and 16 year old Rafaqui Islam (right) working at the Kong Ong Depot, the largest coal storage depot in the Jaintia Hills. The coal comes from privately owned mines in the surrounding region. There are approximately 5,000 privately owned coal mines in the region sitting on top of about 40 million tons of coal. Many use children, often trafficked, to work them under conditions that are hard and unregulated. The coal is dug out using primitive methods and basic tools.
