Silas

Silas, 12, at home on the outskirts of Jayapura, in Indonesia’s far-eastern province of West Papua. Jobs are scarce, infrastructure and services are poor, and 1 in 3 people live in poverty here. Crime rates are high, and UN surveys indicate that 40% of children suffer violence in their lifetimes.
