June 12 2020 is the World Day Against Child Labour - an opportunity to call for action and partnership to ensure that these children are a priority in the crisis response. To mark this day, here is “Three Famous Brothers”, a short documentary about Nay Min (10), Nay Toe (14) and Nay San (16), who survive by collecting bottles and plastic until late at night, while always finding time to play. This video was produced by Hwlan Moe and Min Htet Aung during a story-telling workshop organised by the ILO and PhotoDoc.
