Description

Across Morocco thousands of children are forced into virtually slave labour every year, working long hours for little pay in often dangerous conditions. We met one ten year old girl, Khadija, and follows her remarkable story. When she was just five years old she worked long days in a carpet factory but was rescued by UNICEF workers and now enjoys an education that will transform her life. We were also there when Khadija met one of the champions of children’s rights, Queen Rania of Jordan, when she was on a trip to Morocco.

Part of a 28 x 25-minute documentary series produced for the BBC.
