Chan Thy, a 15-year-old girl, poses for a picture while collecting usable items at landfill dumpsite outside Siem Reap March 19, 2015. She works non-stop at the dumpsite earning 2 USD a day after finishing six-grade primary school two years ago. Anlong Pi, an eight-hectare dumpsite situated close to the famous Cambodian resort province of Siem Reap, has recently become a tourist attraction in its own right. Sightseers pose for pictures with children who scavenge scraps for a living, making between $0.25 and $2 per day, according to a representative of a company overseeing the waste. Michelle Obama is due to visit to Cambodia to promote Let Girls Learn, a worldwide initiative that aims to help adolescent girls attend school.
