In developing countries, an education is not a given right, but a privilege for those who can afford it. In these cases families are selling what little they have to keep their children in school and often can’t continue their education. In addition, children have a lot of chores in the early morning hours, walk far distances to school, are often hungry and worry about drought. By night, children try to study and read by candle light because electricity is too expensive. Yet astonishingly, they often give the biggest smiles with warm hearts. Through native songs and dance, children find solace in a very challenging childhood, often fraught with unimaginable loss.
Kids Share books, documentary film and online media, help to create a powerful voice for youth and their communities. Children who worry about their continued education, are hoping you will pay attention and hear their voice through Kids Share Workshops.
Stay tuned, as we share the beautiful stories, artwork and resilient lives of the children living in rural Zambia, Africa!
