Aqupruk, Kishinde District, North Afghanistan. Tajik boys selling bread on village cluster’ bazaar.
These boys do not go to school. Their families can not afford having them sent to learn. From every dusk instead, they populate bazaar area selling flat, round bread cakes baked by their mothers. They make 20-25 breads sold a day. One bread is 10 AFA, that gives 4-5 USD gross daily of family income.
Quite often these boys are out to work because their fathers died in warfare, either in mujaheddin clashes or during war with Taleban. It is not accepted socially to have their mothers to leave out from their houses to work. So they become bread-winners for their families, by bread-selling, something a mother can do back home.
There are people who were simply not given a chance in this life and these boys count for it.
