This story also aired on KUOW.

UNICEF estimates that 250 million children work for a living in developing countries, and calls the practice of child labor a violation of basic human rights. Many advocates work to eliminate child labor completely, in particular because work can keep children out of school. But in one neighborhood in Karachi, Pakistan, a group of young people are both working and going to school.
