SYNOPSIS: Have you ever heard about children dit sorcier? In Togo, this word means “child accused of witchcraft” and it’s frequently used. Stucked animistic beliefs, deaths caused by the lack of resources, a poor health system and an acute ignorance regarding some kinds of mental disabilities or diseases, encourage the growth of this phenomenon.
Salesians in Togo are fighting against this kind of accusations that provoke an irreversible physical and psychological harm to the children. It stigmatizes and discriminates them for the rest of their life.
Rosalie and Georgette are just some examples of overcome after pain. When you meet this reality you won’t be able to look the other way.
