Project Einstein South Africa - 4 Topics

Published on

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!
