Where Children Sleep Blissfully Around The World

The differences and the luscious facilities that exist and do not exist between the bedrooms of children of haves and the have-nots are very striking if not shocking. Kaya of Tokyo spends $1000 per month on her daughter’s dresses, while the Bedouin shepherd boy Bilal has his bed outdoors along with his father’s herd of goats. Another poor Nepali girl Indira has been working in a granite since she was three. These heartrending experiences go on endlessly.

In order for highlighting such disparities, “Where Children Sleep” Organization produced English photographer James Mollison’s photographs of children’s bedrooms, their plight and facilities across countries such as U.S.A, Mexico, Italy, Israel, Brazil, England, Kenya, Lesotho, Senegal, Nepal, China and India, along with the photos of those children recently.

This study has highlighted the gross inequalities and other lack of facilities that plague the children’s bedrooms. Seeing this, those in the developed world can be said to live in paradise, says James.
