Barrier tape is tied around 15-month-old Shivani's ankle to prevent her from running away, while her mother Sarta Kalara works at a construction site nearby, in Ahmedabad, India, April 19, 2016.

There are about 40 million construction workers in India, at least one in five of them women, and the majority poor migrants who shift from site to site, building infrastructure for India's booming cities. Across the country it is not uncommon to see young children rolling in the sand and mud as their parents carry bricks or dig for new roads or luxury houses. AMIT DAVE/REUTERS

A boy practices as his coach assists during gymnastics lessons at the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School in Shanghai, China, May 4, 2016. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And yet, with the Rio de Janeiro Games less than three months away, the system is beginning to break down due to the shifting demographics of a more prosperous nation. Some schools have closed and others are adjusting the way they work. Some, like the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School, are going into kindergartens to advertise gymnastics as an after-school play time activity to parents. "We call it happy gymnastics," said principal Zhu Zengxiang. ALY SONG/REUTERS

A man rides an electric bike under a poster promoting the 14th National Assembly election on a street in Hanoi, Vietnam May 20, 2016. Communist Vietnam holds its five-yearly day of democracy on Sunday with an election for its parliament, and the only national poll in a country tightly controlled by one party for 41 years. The secretive Communist Party has been on a publicity blitz to showcase its democratic credentials, with the rural roads and the streets of its bustling cities festooned with billboards of a hammer and sickle and the workers, farmers and soldiers synonymous with the stateƕs socialist foundations. The poster (R) reads: "All voters of the country actively vote for members of the National Assembly and People's councils." KHAM/REUTERS

Athletes exercise in the early morning in Iten, near the town of Eldoret, western Kenya, March 21, 2016. In Kenya's western town of Iten, known as the "Home of Champions" for drawing runners to train from around the world, athletes rise to pound the track and dirt roads at dawn. Kenyan athletics champions like marathon world record holder Dennis Kimetto and 800 metre champion David Rudisha have trained there, alongside Britain's double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah and a host of others. At 2,400 metres (7,900 feet), the altitude makes Iten an ideal location for established middle and long distance races to build their endurance and stamina. SIEGFRIED MODOLA/REUTERS
