Gosaikunda, Nepal

Working on his fathers's potato field since a very young age, the now 5 years old little Pemba lives in a small, lonely house on the way towards the Gosaikunda pass and has no friends to play with. The path to the bigger village of Syaphru Besi is difficult even in summer and takes 3 hours to descend and more than 7 for the opposite way. Therefore his wish for going to school remains just a dream. The hard work on the fields makes his hands look like older people's hands
