UNICEF community initiative in Niger gives everyone a voiceListen /
It's customary for children in Niger to help out with the chores, whether at home or in the field. As a result, countless youngsters are kept out of school and are at risk of exploitation and abuse.
A pilot programme supported by the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) is giving children in Niger a chance to have a say in determining what is important to them and their communities.
