CHILDREN

SAY

A child is not a number. Hear directly from children about the challenges they face.

Drag here to learn what children say...

I really want to go back to school but the situation at home, such as, the deteriorating health condition of my mother and the need to create an opportunity for my elder sister Mary to go and look for piece works is holding me back.

Zambia

My mother has chronic back pain and is unable to work. My father works but his income is not enough for us to live here. I clean staircase of buildings around but I am also paid very little. Yes, I am going to school but children insult me a lot there. I will probably quit and, with the extra time I will have, I will look for a better-paying job.

When the weather gets hotter, the rich people buy houses with fan and ACs, and the poorer people and children stay on the street and die. When the rich children get sick by the hot weather, they get medicine and good care, but poorer people cannot afford medicine and easily die.
