We are 13 kids living in Pretoria, South Africa. We live at 2 different shelters - the girls at Tswane Home of Hope - the boys at Child Soul Care.

We all live together, which makes us very close. The shelters are a safe place. We eat, sleep, go to school, go to church and play together.

Photography is very new to us but we’re happy to share our stories with you!

    • Some information about youth in South Africa There are about 50 million people living in South Africa. 30% of this population are 14 years old and younger. That equals 15 million kids! The rate of HIV/Aids is dangerously high - as much as 20%. There are many orphans or children neglected because of illness. Many children are forced to live on the streets because of a lack of protection at home. Child care workers in South Africa estimate as many as 12,000 youth live on the streets, but this number is rising. Saturday, June 12, 2010 6
