Javier uses his childhood to work

Javier does study, but he doesn’t always go to school, he says that at most, he goes three times a week, and although he does like it, he has an adult mentality and thinks that eating out is more important.

MAZATLAN. – April 30 is supposed to be a special day for all children, but for Javier, it is not like that, it is a normal day, like any other, where he has to work.

On Children’s Day, little ones can be with a new toy, clothes, shoes, and well some special food, as well as their favorite chuchulucos, having a great time with their loved ones. 

At just 11 years old, Javier “fights” vehicles at the intersection of one of the busiest avenues in Mazatlán, Óscar Pérez Escobosa. His “job” is to clean the windshield of motorists who drive through the area every day. He brings a plastic bottle in his hand, a piece of rubber with which he carves the glass, of course, if they ask him, and thus receive some pesos.

Javier does study, but he doesn’t always go to school, he says that he goes three times a week at the most, and although he does like it, he has an adult mentality and thinks that eating out is more important.

Javier’s story is like that of many Mexican children who, due to lack of economic income, have to go out in search of a snack.
