This 11-year-old dropped out of school and started working to feed himself

Eliseu, 11, stopped going to school because his family can no longer afford it. Now, he sells Quisangua - a drink made from sugar and maize - to people travelling across the border. He must sell 20 bottles a day in order to afford to eat. This is part of a series of stories covering southern Africa’s drought emergency and was originally produced for World Vision Australia.
