Young, Wild, Free but Homeless

Young, wild, free but homeless. These are series of photographs i took a little while ago during the recess term/ holiday break after completion of my 2nd academic year when I decided to do a short picture story about the Street children living in my University neighborhood called Wandegeya. Unlike other homeless kids, these kids toil to make a living from activities like selling scrap metal and directing cars where to park in this very busy township and just like the rest of other street children they also engage in gambling as a way to accumulate more money to see them through the next day.
