At an elementary school just outside Jakarta, ten-year-old Rahman wraps thin strips of construction paper into spirals to help make greeting cards.
This isn't an arts and crafts class. This card will sell for about 70 cents. His school, Sekolah Kami, meaning "Our School" relies on sales of it, as well as soap and recycled paper to defray its operating costs. Rahman and his family are garbage pickers. He's one of 150 students getting basic education skills here and hope of avoiding life as a scavenger.
