It's 10am, and the 4-year-old is still waiting for breakfast. Sarah collapses to her knees in tears and plops her forehead down on the dirt outside.
Soon she is wailing inconsolably and writhing on her back in the sand. A care giver spots her, picks her up easily by one arm, and gives her a little cassava in a bowl. The toddler shovels it into his mouth with sticky fingers coated in tears and grime. The crying stops, for the moment. But tomorrow, there will be no breakfast. There will be only the prayer that many children say every morning, asking God to help them and get food.
Hunger, Malnutrition, illiteracy and chronic pain are some of the commonly used words referring to African Child. She sleeps on the streets, eats garbage and going to school is seen as a miracle to her.
