*Archana, 13, New Delhi, India* ‘This girl has run away from home. She is counting her money after a day of begging and has a child on her lap.’

*Caleb, Nairobi, Kenya* ‘This is my school. It is poorly constructed. On Sundays it is also our church. On Sundays we sing a lot of songs. In the school we get an education.’

*Haifa, 13, Paris, France* ‘Why did you pick this photo? I don’t get that. I took it to show that some people don’t have any respect for food. For others, that fish is still perfectly edible.’

*Ipul, 15, Jakarta, Indonesia* ‘The life of a street kid: ngamen (busking). And after the ngamen you are tired and you go freshen up – wash your feet. And then you go count your money. This is Rian Soe. He used to live in the shelter, but now he’s gone. He sleeps on the street. I don’t know where. Maybe at the train station.’
