Who I Follow

A child accused of witchcraft
Meet sixteen-year-old Josiane*.  She lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and has been living a true nightmare after being called a witch.

As you can imagine…accusations of sorcery puts children at tremendous risk of discrimination or retribution. Although it is against Congolese law to accuse a child of sorcery, children like Josiane face such claims. UNICEF is working to protect children accused of witchcraft and to change cultural behaviour that puts these children at risk.

As a result…today…with support from a centre for vulnerable children…Josiane has been able to catch up on missed lessons at school and has dreams for the future.

Please…if possible…share her tremendous story.
