This poignant and thought-provoking video by UNICEF is making us think about child homelessness and poverty, and how we treat street children. Often perception is not reality but in this case, it teaches us an important lesson – would you stop if you saw this 6 year old girl on the street?
What would you do if you saw a 6 year old alone in a public place? That’s what UNICEF wants to know in this thought-provoking video.
Anano, 6, is a child actor, and people’s reactions to her were very different depending on how she was dressed. Watch and see and then ask yourself would you stop?
Every day, millions of children living in poverty are ignored, pushed aside and deprived of everything they need to thrive.
It doesn’t need to be this way. The UNICEF 2016 State of the World’s Children Report is a call to action for the world to treat its least fortunate children the way it treats its luckier children #foreverychild #FightUnfair.
