Celebrating Covid-19 heroes in Niger
On World Children's Day, Niger's children celebrate the heroes that fought against Covid-19, whose actions have protected an entire country
On World Children's Day, Niger's children celebrate the heroes that fought against Covid-19, whose actions have protected an entire country through individual interviews that highlight the heroes' singularity and values. They wanted to hear and learn from these women and men who very quickly understood that "protecting oneself is like saving more than 20 million Nigeriens from a disaster, and that respecting a barrier-gesture is a way of breaking the transmission-chain of the virus".
To show them gratitude for their significant efforts, Niamey's children have chosen to identify some of them as their heroes on behalf of all Nigerien children. For the first time, superheroes were no longer in children's imagination but on different communities' streets, investing their energies in meaningful and effective prevention.
