Child laborer making bricks - Lahore

This young Pakistani boy works in a brick kiln on the outskirts of Lahore in Pakistan, making bricks. His parents owe the brick kiln owner 5,000 Pakistani rupees - less than US $100. Because of this debt, his family works as bonded laborers, which is illegal but all-to-common among brick kiln workers. He does not have the opportunity to attend school, and barring outside intervention, he will likely remain completely illiterate for the rest of his life, as with his parents.
