UNICEF Offers Fanta, 9, A Safe Place to Learn and Play
December 30, 2016
Providing a safe place for kids to learn and play is one way UNICEF works to help children at risk.
Fanta, 9, joins in daily recreational activities, organized under a tent, at a camp for displaced families in Elh Mainari, Niger.
This UNICEF-supported program aims to recreate a sense of normalcy for children who have fled conflict — Fanta is originally from a part of Nigeria threatened by Boko Haram — and to protect them from further trauma, exploitation and abuse.
