Dogodogo: Tanzanian Street Children Tell Their Stories
ISBN: 0230722121 Global Overview for this book
4 journalers for this copy...
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 wonderfull booklet, which will surely touch your heart with its stories and pictures, was started already twice by me as a bookring but got lost each time on its way.
Now I bought another one for a third attempt of a bookring.

Several boys mentioned their disappointment at not coming out top in the public exam. Given that they had spent many years without schooling, I felt they had done a great job, and it's really unfortunate that they were not sponsored to higher education. While I understand that no matter how much donation there is, there would have to be a cut off and some disappointment, it still saddens me that those boys could not continue on. I just hope that whatever education and care they received at Dogodogo would help improve their lives.
Now this book is going to Dubaireader.
