We are the Future

About the Book
We are the Future is an educational book designed to raise awareness around child poverty, and to provoke thought about how different children live around the globe. This book tells the untold stories of how children carry out their daily lives in Cambodia, Nicaragua, Uganda, Syria, Afghanistan, Haiti, New Zealand, Madagascar, The United States of America and Malawi*. If you want to know what it is like to be on the run from the Lord's Resistance Army, what life is like living and working in a rubbish dump, how orphaned children survive living on the streets, what life is like for the displaced children of Syria, the importance of an education, the truth about the slave trade in Haiti or what life is like in a slum, then read this book. This book will take you on a journey filled with despair, displacement, danger, sadness and hope. The time is now. Don't let yourself ignore these children any longer. They are our future, after all. All profits from each book are donated to World Vision to help the children who need it most.
*DISCLAIMER: The children in this book are not real children and are not associated with the corresponding photograph in any way. Although they are fictional, they are strongly based on true stories and extensive research, and aim to illustrate what life is like for some children in a selection of countries across the world. All names used are authentic and appropriate to the country they represent. All photos used are not my own, however the photos I have selected have been deemed commercially reusable and are fine to use for this purpose.
