This photo was captured from a gold mining, Kakamega, Kenya. This young man was taking rest in between his work, gold is the symbol of richness every where, but there is a hard working mining community who work very hard to make the world shiny. Even if they deal with this richest material, they are still struggling a lot for their basic needs.
