In 2018 Keeley travelled to Sierra Leone where she met a young boy called Munda.
Munda was a young boy who risked his life every day by diving to the bottom of a river to collect sand for construction work when all he really wanted was to go school and learn to be a mechanic.
Earlier this year, we went back to visit Munda two years on he is no longer diving for sand. Thanks to Unicef’s support, he is now at school and learning to be a mechanic–his dream job.
Keeley joined us in Jordan in 2016 to visit children and families living in the Za’atari refugee camp and host communities in Amman. Many of these children and families had fled their homes in Syria due to the ongoing conflict.
Keeley saw Unicef’s work in providing education and child-friendly spaces which offer learning support and psychological care, as well as being a safe space to play.
