Almajirin Augie

In my village in Augie, there are many little boys like this that make a living by begging. They get clothes donated by people or passed down to them from family members. This is an example of what these clothes are worth. I asked him why he would be wearing something so heavy in the scorching heat and he replied 'Saboda bani da wani' which means 'because I have no other alternative. I will be uploading another image of his friends next. The heat gets as high as 44 degrees C.

There something that really touched me about this picture. I have not been able to get it out my mind. I no longer hoard clothes and dont mind if i can get that jacket i wished for. Key word. Contentment.

Thank You, Aisha.
