We hear the uplifting story of 13 year old Kesz Valdez, once reduced to scrabbling for survival among the rubbish tips of Manila, now he is the proud recipient of the International Children’s Peace Prize. Kesz was recognised for his work on behalf of other youngsters who still live on the streets in the Philippines.

In London, we hear from Emmanuel Jal, whose story is no less inspiring. From being a child soldier in Sudan he was rescued and smuggled out.
Now, not only is he an internationally renowned hip-hop star but he has also established a charity bringing education to war survivors in Sudan and the underprivileged in Kenya.

And we talk to the Italian writer, psychologist and psychotherapist Maria Rita Parsi about how children deal with traumatic events that can scar their lives forever.
