Life, hope, colour and FUN
Children in Soweto slum Uganda are vulnerable to abuse, neglect and abduction. The Child Friendly Space supported by Children on the Edge gives them a safe place to enjoy being children.
The children here get a lot of learning done, but also a lot of playing! This has been especially fun for them since the installation of a bright, colourful and imaginative new playground, made from local resources.
This is a photograph of the children on the their new motorbike.. or as they would say their new ‘boda boda’. Boda Boda’s are a common form of taxi around Jinga. When interviewed the children said that after lunch when activities end, they like to stay around for as long as they can to listen in to the afternoon activities which the older children receive… and of course to play in the playground!
