Every day an army of shoe-shiners works the streets in the Bolivian city of La Paz.

They've long been victims of discrimination, wearing masks to hide their identities. No one wants to admit to being a shoe shine boy – part of an army of men, boys and sometimes girls doing one a job in the capital which carries a badge of shame. But for many, it’s all there is.

But new social projects are allowing them to emerge from the shadows.

Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from La Paz, Bolivia.
