The Children of Africa


Life in Africa for Children - The Children of Africa

Impacting the life of a child in Africa

Welcome to Out of Africa - Too - Africa's Children section.  Below you will find links to what it is like growing up, being educated and living in East Africa.  You will enter into the lives of African Children though their stories and pictures.  I hope that your heart will be touched by the children of Africa as they have touched mine.

Since 1992 I have been working with Africa's children in places such as Sudan, Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda...In the last year IThe children of Africa have focused on "the Kid's born into  the Slums" of Kampala.  Presently I work with a Ugandan organization , KIN Initiative Orphanage that has helped many Ugandan children to break out of the chains of poverty through educational empowerment.

Children need a chance in life, being born into the slums of Africa simply means absence; absence of toilets (60 of children in slums have no toilets or pit latrines), absence of clean drinking water (water costs money and is carried in jerry cans which often develop mold and mildew and often lack a closure), absence of proper hygiene due lack of water, absence of schooling due to lack of money in the family even though education in countries such as Uganda is free for primary education, it costs money for many other things (67% of girls drop out of primary school in Uganda and 38% of boys do the same.)

Life is simply hard for children since most families earn very little and in slums un-employment exceeds 60% or more, so parents or guardians have little money for the children, their education, clothing, shoes, housing, food, and much more.

These pages show both needs and results, take a look, stories that touch the heart and the pictures will speak volumes to you.  They are not there to evoke pity in you but an empowering spirit of compassion that might make a difference in the life of a child.

These pages will give you the opportunity to find out what it is like for a child in Africa, what you can do beyond reading pages, beyond looking at some of the pictures, but how to assist in transforming the life of a child...from Kampala...jon
