A few years ago the African state of Mali was covered by the real gold rush. Lack of work, rampant poverty and incredible stories of the lucky ones who have found large gold nuggets are pushing thousands of people into the search of gold and a better life. About 20,000 children are emploeyd looking for gold in Mali according to Human Rights Watch. Every day new young miners come to Kenieba hoping to get rich or at least to avoid dying from hunger
