The Journey

The Journey

Meet 3-year-old Amina in the distant 'Afar' region of Ethiopia, trying to find enough food and water to survive during the worst drought in 30 years; 10-year-old Changkouth, living in conflict-ridden South Sudan, trying to get an education and avoid being recruited as a child soldier, in the country with the highest proportion of out-of-school children in the world; and 18-year-old Mani in Chad - ostracized by her community because she is living with HIV, but determined to change minds and using social media to rally support.
