backcover text:
With the help of their English teacher, eight young Tanzanians recount their experiences as street children - how they came to leave home, how they survived, how they found refuge, how they still love their families.
These moving and often shocking stories are illustrated by the boys themselves.

A small book(let) in DinA4 with 50 pages. The printing was sponsored by unicef. And here you find the homepage of the Dogodogo Centre.

This is a wonderfull booklet with stories and pictures which will touch your heart.
Some time ago I started this booklet as a little bookring but unfortunately it was lost on its first station or on the way to it. So I organized now a replacement and hope that it might travel safer and more sucessfull than the other one.

This bookring shall end in a community library at a small island at the Philippines, which I support since I stayed there as volunteer and saw how much reading material is needed there. You can find the address of the headquarter of the organisation here: CERV-contact or just contact me.

Released 6 yrs ago (12/9/2011 UTC) at Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg Germany

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Now on it's way to the first ring participant.

I put it in a cardbord envelope as unfortunately German postmans are often not very gentle to the mail and it has already some folds and wear.

So, now also this book got nearly lost. I'm not feeling very well at the moment and since beginning of December I pay a neighbour of mine to do little tasks for me like shopping and go to the post office too. In January I got suspicious as an important letter has never reached its addressee.
Yesterday a friend and I were able to confront this neighbour and got several parcels and big letters back, which have never been send away. It looked like it was too tempting to keep not only her payment but also the money dedicated for the postage. Some of the books and big letters I put already today in the postbox. The rest will be brought to the post office beginning of next week.

Really great to read about the difficulties these children had and how they managed it to change their lives. It is such a joy for them to be able to visit school! And they are so happy about things we didn't mind.

I will ask the next address, but tomorrow my holidays start and I can only send the booklet after April 15th.

Those children's stories are sad and really impressive. Every child should have enough to eat, should be able to go to school, should be treated as a child. Sister Jean is doing a fantastic job - Bravo !
Thanks Katopua for sharing this book with us.
