Democratic Republic of Congo Volonté Katembo, 15, washes a motorcycle in the vehicle washing area of Mbogho, a neighborhood in Kirumba, Democratic Republic of Congo. Since schools have been closed due to the coronavirus, some young people have used their free time to wash vehicles. They can earn between 1,000 and 1,500 Congolese francs (52 and 78 cents) for washing a motorcycle, 4,000 francs ($2) for washing a minibus and 9,500 francs (almost $5) for washing a commercial truck.
