Children fleeing conflict and drought from southern parts of Somalia have been enjoying the company of each other and their minders, at the Kabasa IDP camp Child Friendly Space (CFS) in Dollow, Somalia. The CFS is funded by World Vision. The camp hosts more than 1,200 households where most children have never been to school. The children are singing songs that reflect their dreams, having the security of Dollow as cover. Most children at the camp have witnessed violence and are traumatized by the long treacherous journey that brought them to Dollow. These are the words of their song

When I was a little boy
My mother wake me up
I brush my teeth
I call my Yaya (baby sitter)
I take my bag
I go to school
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty........
