His teachers bullied him for not wearing the proper school uniform and shoes, but Tariq did not have the money to buy these. He would love to get an education and a good job so he could get his family a good house in a better neighbourhood. However, he cannot afford it on 200 rupees a day. He says "My heart is full of dreams but nothing will come of it". His mother does not allow him or his brothers to go outside after work hours because she is afraid they will use drugs. Luckily, the gangs are not so strong where Tariq lives, he says.Locations:Asia-Karachi-Lyari-PakistanDate:14 Aug, 2008Credit:© Robert Knoth / GreenpeaceMaximum size:4500px X 4500pxRestrictions:No FundraisingKeywords:Children-Electronic waste-Electronics-Footwear-KWCI (GPI)-Poverty-Shanty towns-Toxics (campaign title)-Waste disposalShoot:Toxics E-Waste Documentation in PakistanIn the Karachi district of Lyari, hundreds of workers, including teenage children, earn their livelihoods by dismantling electronic scrap and extracting valuable components such as copper to sell. This is an insight into the personal cost of e-waste. Thousands of tons of e-waste such as discarded PCs, mobile phones and TVs, are dumped in Africa and Asia every year. Greenpeace research shows that some of this waste is exported from Europe to Pakistan.
