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.

"If you are not informed, you do not have any wealth," says Rachida. "Material richness will end, whereas education lasts a lifetime, and you can pass it on to your children. A country cannot develop without having educated children."
