The above photo was taken literally 10 metres from where I am now sitting at my desk and writing this article for you. It’s of a young Nepali boy, who is only 13 years old, performing the dangerous task of breaking up rocks with a crude hammer for over eight hours a day. Why is he doing this? To fix my driveway of course (O.K. it’s my landlords driveway but you get the picture).
I mean, for crying out loud, my wife and I are Christian aid and development workers!
