Nigerian child caring for his sibling. In Nigeria a country politically divided and with serious civil and religious conflicts children are still hopeful to have a bright future like in every other countries, they strive at the corner of the atreets selling water bottles, fresh fruits and helping their families economic conditions and even in the most daring circumstances can be truly helpful and joyful people. While travelling to study Nigerian historical heritage at Abeokuta, this young child suddenly turned to look at me and smiled with joy.A smile of hope.
