We’re children fighting to eradicate poverty

Meet the children involved in the Tapori Children's Network, in Bukavu in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. In the 1990s, they got together and decided to "be the friends of those who do not have friends." Today, through Tapori exchanges with children from other countries, the children of Bukavu take action every day to overcome poverty in their families, their neighborhoods, and even the United Nations! As they grow older, some become Tapori facilitators and continue to work for positive change around them. Through their friendship and initiatives, the Tapori children prompt adults to take action and build peace and solidarity with the weakest.
