report UN Children's Fund

Hello, I am Glodi, a Child Reporter from Kinshasa. My article is about the Global Handwashing Day and our great advocacy for the children of the city and secondary school students to also benefit from the Healthy Villages and Schools program. It’s been two years now since we, Child Reporters of Kinshasa, have been advocating for an end to the discrimination that allows only children living in rural areas and those attending primary schools to benefit from the Healthy Villages and Schools program in the DRC.
