In May of last year, our volunteers had the blessed opportunity to fly out to West Africa with Human Appeal and witness, first hand, the suffering of Senegal’s street children. This was all part of a documentary: Selfies in Africa, which was broadcast on Islam Channel during the month of Ramadan to help raise awareness.
They visited the Empire of the Children- a children’s centre in Senegal’s capital, Dakar, which is run from a former cinema. The centre takes in homeless children, ages 5-16, offering them accommodation and education, as well as social support. There is a growing number of children living rough on the streets in Dakar. All alone and extremely vulnerable, they urgently need protection from starvation, trafficking, slavery and forced begging.
Our experiences while filming Selfies in Africa made us even more determined than to help, and we now want to raise £500,000 to build a bigger and more permanent centre, enabling Human Appeal to help more children. With your support, we can do it!
Here are a few words from Empire of the Children ambassador, Demba Ba:
“I have been involved with Empire of Children for some time now and during numerous visits to the project I have seen how it has developed over the years. Originally a small project helping only a handful of boys, the centre now takes in girls and vulnerable women too. It really does transform lives in a country where there is no safety net for the poorest people in society. I cannot think of a better way to spend my birthday than helping the centre grow.”Buy Tickets Now
