San, Waï and Myo, Myanmar

San, 10 years and Wai 9 years, live in Bagan in Burma, the land of the thousand temples.

These thousand-year-old wonders have recently attracted many tourists to Bagan.

In order to pay for their uniforms and school supplies, San and Wai, who live by fishing and breeding with their families, make small handicrafts and sell them in the evening to curious visitors.

Every morning, they walk two hours through the marshy fields and sandy paths, in the heart of the remains of the ancient Bagan kingdom, to reach a small port. Myo accompanies them, even if she does not go to school this year …

They must arrive on time to join the wooden boats that take them to school every day on the other side of the Irrawaddy River.
