The Uncultured Project

A former Notre Dame student took it upon himself to travel to Bangladesh and document the effects of poverty on people's lives and their everyday struggles. In one of his videos, he talks about a young boy who works hard every day to collect plastic bottles from his community and make a profit of only about $2 each day. Getting out of poverty is not just a matter of hard work. Many people, like this young boy, earn only a small amount each day despite their hard work and dedication.
