Where children dream

When night falls, children like John, 8, from Tabaco, Philippines, dream of leaving poverty behind.

Honrri, 12, sleeps here with his two brothers in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Honrri dreams of becoming a doctor, “ ... to help people who are sick, because it’s nice to help others.”
