The artisanal granite quarry in Pissy.

Since 2005, UNICEF has sought to eradicate child labour in mines and quarries, in particular that of Pissy. One of the initiatives was to protect the little ones by creating a nursery next to this granite quarry. Without this solution, parents, not being able to leave the youngest children alone at home, took them with them in the quarry.
