One of two 'day in the life' photo stories shot in and around the industrial fishing towns of Samut Sakhon and Samut Songkhram, south of Bangkok, shortly after the release of a study documenting child labour in the region. The photography was on behalf of Save the Children and facilitated by the Labour Protection Network and the stories were presented at a rights of the child conference in the Phillippines in order to draw attention to the issue of child labour in Thailand, the living conditions for Burmese migrant children, and measures being taken to improve access for migrant children to education.
