Title: Charcoal Kids of Ulingan
Location: Manila, Philippines

A young girl jumping into the polluted Pasig river after working the charcoal pits in the squatter community in the North Harbour of Manila, where families work as Ulingeros, or charcoal workers. Many of the workers in Ulingan are small children. Some are teenagers and a few were even as young as six or seven, unable to attend school because of poverty.
