AP PHOTOS: A day in the life of an Indian child scavenger

Imradul Ali, 10, second from left, studies with other students at a school near a landfill on the outskirts of Gauhati, India, Friday, Feb. 5, 2021. Once school is done for the day, Ali, rushes home to change out of his uniform so that he can start his job as a scavenger in India’s remote northeast. Coming from a family of scavengers or “rag pickers," Ali started doing it over a year ago to help his family make more money. Ali says he doesn’t want to spend his life doing this, but he doesn’t know what the future holds.
