Children Of The Dump.
For the scavenger children of Indonesia’s largest rubbish dump, building a career outside the place may be a life ambition harder won than for many others.
But that hasn’t stopped 11-year-old Nurafidah, who spends her mornings in school and her afternoons sorting plastic, from dreaming of becoming a chef.
“I want to reach my goals. I want to be successful and help my parents build their own home, and have my own home one day,” she says.
She is not alone. Many children of the dump are sure they want to be doctors, midwives and in the police force. Some hope to be in the military, others want to be singers.
