Working with local partners, MAG conducts Risk Education safety sessions to warn children of the dangers of playing with Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW). 

The aim is to reduce the risks to children in homes with unguarded SALW. 

"They know at age six or seven what a Kalashnikov is, and that it also kills," says one of MAG's risk instructors, Berivan Sadiq. "They are as familiar with the gun as they are with drinking water." 

The boys and girls will then go home to their fathers and tell them to put their guns away in safe places or not to leave them lying on the kitchen table, she explains.
