When we tend to think
of an African child, it is often associated with an image of a poor African
child who is often ill or hungry. Whilst this is the sad truth for many, it
would be wrong to believe that every African child has a life of misery. This is simply not
the case. Whilst many African children have absolutely nothing in the world,
many are very happy.
page is designed to depict the African child in non-stage
managed moments, just caught on camera by amateurs. It is hard
not to smile when watching these videos. Then just imagine how
much more happy these children would be if you can find about
50p a day to help sponsor one of them and truly bring about a
Although 50p a day may not sound much it will ensure that the
African child you sponsor has books for school, for, whilst
primary education in most African countries is free, books,
pencils and paper have to be supplied by each child which is
too expensive for most families.
Your average African child
loves school as they know that getting an education and being able to read and
write is the only way to secure a decent future in countries where there is no
welfare safety net. In fact, in countries like Uganda, where thousands in the
north historically commuted to the towns each night for safety, your average
African child will take their homework along with them to ensure it gets
completed before the next school day.
Your 50p will also go towards
ensuring the African child you sponsor has access to clean water preventing many
childhood illnesses and also go towards making sure the child has at least one
good meal a day and has access to proper health care. These are things we all take
for granted, but we shouldn't,
for this is the future. Make an Africa child happy today and consider taking out
a child sponsorship program here.
Below is a map showing levels
of human development across the world with the situation for African children
generally being significantly lower than for other children across the world.
