PHOTOGRAPHY: Young photographers from Niger and Mali document the problems facing their communities

BAMAKO, Mali, 6 December 2011 – “This child looks very mean, and it’s a consequence of life on the street,” said 17-year-old Rachida Aboubacar, gazing at a photograph taken by one of her friends.
Rachida is one of several children and adolescents selected from some of the most vulnerable communities in Niger to participate in a UNICEF-supported photography workshop.
Photography workshops are part of UNICEF’s efforts to ensure all children, especially those marginalized or living in poverty, are empowered to express themselves.
