Janet, 4, reaches for the hand of her 6-year-old brother, Jesus, at the UNICEF-supported transition centre where they now live in La Paz, Bolivia. They were abused by their parents and found living on the streets. They will stay at the transition centre until space is available for them at a more permanent centre. #Bolivia #LaPaz #UNICEF #sister #brother #care #protection

It’s Monday! For many children, Mondays are the best. Radwan Al Fahil lives in South Sudan. He attends a UNICEF-supported school and loves going to class. “School is the best thing about being here,” he said. “Education is even more important than shoes. I would rather be in class with bare feet than have new clothes.” #school #monday #class #southsudan #happy #education #smile #book #learn

It’s #backtoschool time and seven-year-old Usher Sanca walks to #school with his arms round his cousin and a #friend. He is a first-grade #student at a #UNICEF-supported school in Guinea Bissau. Born with a physical #disability, Usher would almost certainly have joined the 90% of #disabled children in developing countries worldwide who are out of #education if he didn’t live so close to the child-friendly school.  We are working around the #world to make sure that #children with #disabilities are welcomed into schools and are able to learn as equals alongside their peers. #instagood #september #happy

Arjina, 13, lives in #Bangladesh. Her #dream of becoming a doctor was nearly destroyed when her #parents arranged her #marriage a few months ago even though she objected that she was too #young. #Child marriage is common in Bangladesh where nearly half of all #girls are married by the age of 15. After learning about the associated risks, Arjina’s parents called off the marriage until she reaches the age of 18. #UNICEF supports programmes to change harmful behaviours and social norms in communities, such as child marriage. #charity #children #letgirlsbegirls

This is Jenny Rose. She earns about 60 pesos (US$1.20) per day selling her homemade candles to tourists in Cebu City in the #Philippines. The #money helps her mother support Jenny Rose and her siblings while their father is in prison. Jenny Rose dreams of becoming a doctor. Then, she said, “I will save my money, build a house and send all my siblings to school”. #UNICEF
