Unheared Voices Story

December 13, 2006

A recently released children’s opinion poll sampled 531 children aged between 9-17 years old in four key urban and rural locations in Somalia and is the first of its kind in a country that has known no peace for close to 16 years.

The poll samples an interesting variety of influences, hopes, dreams and expectations of the young people concerning both their own and their country’s future.

This poll was the very first possibility since the collapse of governance in Somalia that Somali children have spoken about their dreams and aspirations.
The question is “Who will listen to these emerging voices?” Please read through the results of the study (pdf 19KB) to make these voices heard!
