The Babies

Standard

It seems like African children are often portrayed in the media as being sad, sick, and malnourished. Certainly, many sad situations do exist and I could show you pictures or tell stories portraying the tragedies of the African people. Instead, I would like to show you Zambia, the way I see it, and celebrate the similarities rather than dwell on the differences between American and Zambian children.

The children love to perform for an audience…

They pose for the camera…

Image

They take charge…

Image

They love to read…

Image

They enjoy special treats…

Image

They make silly faces…

Image

Image

They play dress up…

Image

Image

They love to eat…

Image

They make messes…

Image

Image

Image

They make mischief…

Image

Image

They play ball…

Image

They play together…

Image

And, of course, the children are practically perfect in every way.
