The children's overseas development organisation, Plan Ireland, is holding an exhibition of photographs, Children of Burkina Faso – A Day in the Life, which depict the lives of children in the second poorest country in the world. The images, which will be on display in the Irish Aid Volunteering and Information Centre in O'Connell Street, Dublin for the month of February, are the work of award winning Reuters photographer Finbarr O'Reilly. The theme of the exhibition is the everyday lives of children in Burkina Faso which is second from bottom of the United Nations Development Programme's development index table. The lives of the children depicted could not be more different from the lives of Irish children – even with the current recession. The children are seen in everyday situations such as at school, at play, at home and also carrying out tasks such as fetching firewood and water, cooking and cleaning etc. Work, unfortunately is part of life for many millions of children, especially girls, throughout the developing world and prevents many of them from attending school. Following its run in the Irish Aid Centre, the exhibition will be brought to other venues around the country. This exhibition will run until 28th February.
