Scavenging for Charcoal Fuel in the Rubbish of Manila

Children sort through scraps of charcoal and nails to sell for a few pesos in Ulingan, a 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.
