Recently, the Government of Bolivia has intervened with the 548 law about "ninos y ninas y adolescentes Trabajadores" in order to protect and regulate in some way these situations. Approved in July 2014, the rule seeks to balance the constraints stemming from international conventions relating to child labor and the need for subsistence inherited from the country's poverty. This law sets the minimum age of child laborers in 14 years and defines what are the prohibited activities for teens.

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made visual story teller. I like to relate stories about the human being and his capacities and social implications of his interventions in this world. Until now I brought my camera around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
