Pona Bana, the voice of the children in the Democratic Republic of Congo wishes you a Happy New Year 2019!
What you preferred in 2018
This year, you were thousands to follow us, listen, and share the voice of the children of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). On the ground, the Child Reporters, our teams, and our partners are following the situation. This year, we have published more than 200 articles and given the voice to dozens of children so that they can speak on topics to which they relate, that interest or concern them. A very big THANK YOU to you all for listening to them!
During this holiday season we offer you the best of articles written by the children and the young reporters of the DRC:
- Let’s not forget that a child is the future of tomorrow
- Displaced by the violence, Shukuru dreams of resuming his normal life
