About the Book
Children of Africa is a photographic journey through the lives of children growing up in Ebukoolo, Kenya.
The moving photographs are sure to bring smiles to your face and brighten your day. What you thought of Africa and the images that are ingrained in your mind are only one side of this beautiful country.
When I traveled to Africa I was unsure of what I would expect. I thought that I would see poverty at it's worst. I thought I would see people living in unthinkable conditions. Although I did find poverty and I did see people living in unthinkable conditions, I also found a lot of love and a lot compassion and some care free kids without a worry in the world. My perceptions were changed and I found a new found love in a country so many miles away from where I came from.
In this book you will find some incredible children, with an incredible exuberant energy that is unmatched.
One hundred percent of my profits will go to my next trip to Africa, which is scheduled for September, 2008. I will use one hundred percent of the money to help the small school in which I will teach at. The money will go to help buy the school a cow, which the school can then sell the milk to buy books and other items the school needs. The cow will then be a long term money making project for the school. For more questions about the project or my next trip email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for looking!
My name is David Hartness. I am an avid traveler, photographer and educator. I have traveled around Africa, teaching and working with the children, which has inspired my 3 books. I am planning a trip to Mozambique, where I will teach children in a remote village. The money raised from the sales of these books will go to the school in which I teach at.
