COX'S BAZAR, BANGLADESH - APRIL 14: Beach vendors buy chips to sell on the beach April 14, 2014 in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. A group of 10-12 year old female beach vendors, most of whom have dropped out of school to help support their families, have been learning to surf for the past three months in preparation for the annual Cox's Bazar surf competition. 24 year old surfer, lifeguard and beach worker Rashed Alam, has been teaching and mentoring the girls for 3 months. Like the girls, Alam dropped out of school and started working on the beach to help support his family at a young age. He started surfing when he was 16. He says that his way of giving back is by ensuring that girls get a good future through surfing. (Photo by Allison Joyce/Getty Images)
