NDO – Stories about children who are living and earning their keep on the streets are being told at a photo exhibition entitled “24 hours on the streets” which officially opened at Vietnam Women’s Museum in Hanoi on December 2.

Divided into three parts, the exhibition introduces visitors to the lives, sadness and difficulties of street children through the most truthful stories.

The photos and stories at the exhibition are brought closer to the audience thanks to the application of the photovoice method. Accordingly, they even recorded and shared moments from their lives on streets.

In addition to the risks and uncertainties, the street children’s stories also share the belief of a brighter future with the support of State agencies, ministries, Women’s Unions at all levels, the whole community and donors.

With the message of “The safety of women and children is the common responsibility of the whole society”, the exhibition will help viewers understand and sympathise with disadvantaged children.

The exhibits will be also displayed online via the website of the Vietnam Women’s Museum.

The exhibition is part of activities under the project of “communicating, educating, mobilising and supporting women to join the settlement of social issues related to children for the 2017-2027 period”.
