Children with disabilities are one of the most marginalised and excluded groups of children across the world: compared to children living without disabilities, children with disabilities are less likely to go to school, more likely to be victims of violence, more likely to have poorer health, and more likely to be discriminated against and isolated from their communities.
In this film, four children with disabilities from Sierra Leone tell us about their experiences of discrimination, highlight some steps which have helped them overcome discrimination in their lives, and inspire us with their ambitions for the future. The film highlights their ability as powerful advocates to the global community for the promotion of the rights of all children. The film provides an important, safe and creative vehicle to ensure that children’s voices are heard at international forums.
