Roger (13) collecting water from the well at his home. Roger has been an apprentice bicycle repairer since October 2020. Following the COVID-19 economic crisis, and the closing of the borders, his father, a mason, lost a lot of work and could no longer support his family. Roger no longer ate daily and couldn't keep up with school. Despite his desire to continue his education he decided to work so that he could eat at least once a day with the hope of being able to return to school one day.
