Child Miners - Tanzania

Young children do difficult mining jobs in Mererani - in the northern part of Tanzania - as they search for valuable gemstones.  For these children, "school and a normal childhood are beyond their means."

This clip is part of a documentary - "Gem Slaves" on the mining children of Tanzania.
