The Observers Direct - With our Observers... in Abidjan
The Observers is a collaborative project that includes both a website and a weekly TV show, all based on amateur content.
We visited three of our Observers in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, to report on subjects they have covered for us: the demolition - often without compensation - of informal settlements where people have lived for years; the housing crisis at the city's universities, where hundreds??? of students are forced to sleep in their classrooms every night; and "I Love Abidjan", a Facebook tribute to the city by a Congolese IT specialist who loves his adopted home.
The Observers program brings you the best amateur images from around the world, all verified by France 24 journalists. To see more reports from our Observers – and to become an Observer yourself! – head to our website: www.observers.france24.com/en.
