Anne-Marie Barry, from Family for Every Child, said:
“Because we’re a global network, we’ve been able to amplify the voices of children from different contexts around the world. While some of the pieces talk about difficulties and negative emotions, there are others that really highlight children and young people’s resilience and hopes for the future, too.”
