These boys reside at the Sacred Heart Church orphanage in Kyauktan, Myanmar, just outside of Yangon. They received a rare treat of meat for lunch on this day, donated by a local family in memory of a family member. Kids "graduate" upon reaching 18 years of age, but all come back to help in some way. These kids are among the poorest people in a poor nation, but one can see much positive energy in their eyes.

Location: Kyauktan, Myanmar
