Children's feet blacked with the ashes of burned tires. With schools closed, Aminata Zoundi (not pictured) said she had no option but to bring her 10-year-old daughter, Zenabo, to the quarry, where the girl sat beside her as Zoundi pounded stones into pebbles. "When she's here with me I have to find her food, make sure she doesn't injure herself with rocks," Zoundi said.

Women break stone blocks. For children aged 3 to 6, workers can leave them at the quarry's nursery, where they play in safer surroundings. "It's easier for them to work without their children," said teacher Abdoul Kabre, who once worked in the quarry himself. He started when he was 12 years old.
