Listen to Me - Stories from marginalised children around the world

EveryChild and Save the Children UK, have collaborated with iceandfire to stage a new play based on real testimonies of vulnerable children around the world.

20 years on from the creation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), Listen to Me tells the stories of children living on the streets, fleeing conflict, trapped in bonded labour and growing up in abusive households and will explore whether children have seen an improvement in their lives.

The play was performed for an invited audience of children's rights experts, charities, opinion formers and decision makers at the prestigious Unicorn Theatre, the UKs flagship theatre for young people in London, on 16 November.

  1. Hello. I am from India. I came across your blog today, while debating with a friend on human trafficking and prostitution.

    Reading your posts on Kolkata was a revealation.

    Can you please share your thoughts on Legalization of Prostitution? Does it solve the problems that sex workers face? Does it bring them more safety and security?
