A child jumps on the waste products that are used to make poultry feed as she plays in a tannery at Hazaribagh in Dhaka October 9, 2012. Luxury leather goods sold across the world are produced in a slum area of Bangladesh's capital where workers, including children, are exposed to hazardous chemicals and often injured in horrific accidents, according to a study released on Tuesday.

This picture really shocked me and grabbed my attention when I first saw it. I can't even think of what kind of hardships people goes through in places such as this. If you look at the joy in the kids face its sickening thinking that this is where he has to play, let alone live. When i was younger I jumped between snowbanks and puddles, not piles of dirty rubbish.
