Child Talks

World Vision Ireland Welcomes Amina from Tanzania to Child Talks

Headline 13-year-old Amina took part in Child Talks and addressed the need to End Violence Against Children in Tanzania.

With the support of Irish Aid, we've had an incredible week with the wonderful Amina, a 13-year-old girl from Dodoma, Tanzania.

Amina took part in Child Talks yesterday, hosted by the Ombudsman for Children's Office on World Children’s Day at Dublin Castle, and addressed the need to End Violence Against Children in Tanzania. She highlighted the issues of corporal punishment and child marriage as unacceptable practices, calling for children to be listened to on issues affecting them.

She was part of an incredible line-up of young speakers who were welcomed by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone.

Amina also participated in workshops with students at DCU and Sion Hill Secondary School earlier in the week, discussing Violence Against Children in Tanzania and Ireland.

A huge thank you to Irish Aid for enabling Amina to participate in these important discussions.
