To mark World Water Day we're sharing some water-themed photos taken by young people in Niger, West Africa.
Close to 800 million people worldwide still don't have access to clean drinking water. In countries like Niger, where safe water is scarce, the impact on children's lives is huge.
These children worked with UNICEF photographer Giacomo Pirozzi to explore what it means to be vulnerable as a child in Niger.
The message is clear: having proper access to safe water would change many children's lives.

Two sisters carry containers of water over a bridge of sandbags in Kirkissoye, a poor district in Niamey. They were photographed by Abdoulaye Bello Doua, 16. "I know girls who work as servants and who are mistreated by their employers," said Abdoulye. "Those people do not even know that children have rights."
