Indonesian street boys turn trash to treasure

Children in Jakarta's slums plan to sell their designer furniture to luxury shops.

    Street children in Indonesia's capital have been collecting garbage and transforming it into furniture pieces.

    The boys, who live in the slums of Jakarta, were trained and funded by a group of Dutch designers.

    They are now planning to sell their work to luxury shops in Indonesia and the Netherlands.
