Making a living from the local dump in Eldoret is no easy job; disease, injury, substance abuse and even the threat of violence is an everyday reality for the people who live and work at the dump. It’s especially hard for the mothers and their children forced through poverty to scrape a living of around $1 dollar a day. These pictures were taken with the help of charity Mary’s Meals who are hoping to break the cycle of poverty by providing free school meals .
