A Story of Hope and Friendship for One Young Kenyan Orphan.


 No one knows the story of Kenya better than the children who live it. I had the opportunity to travel to this country and become immersed with the families there. The result is a1500-word nonfiction picture book titled, “When This Is Over, I Will Go To School, And I Will Learn To Read”: A Story of Hope and Friendship for One Young Kenyan Orphan. This true story of one little boy is told in his own words. While there are many books about Africa on the market, none are told from a child’s point of view like this one.

The children from the village created the book’s illustrations. I asked these students to draw what represented family, love, happiness, sadness, fear and hope for them. I have powerful photographs of the children, the school, the village and the countryside, the hospital, the mobile clinic and orphan program. It is this truth that is certain to nudge the hearts and minds of parents, teachers and children everywhere.

Excerpt

“When This Is Over, I Will Go To School, And I Will Learn To Read:”

A story of hope and friendship for one young Kenyan orphan


By Pamela Bitterman



My name is Julius. I am six years old and I have never been to school. I live in Kenya, Africa with my bibi (grandmother), my dada (sister) Sarah and my kaka (brother) Hezron. Hezron is only three years old, but he is much bigger than I am.

We live in a mud hut on our little shamba (farm) in the forest.

Baba (father) and mama (mother) are gone. They were very sick and they could not get better. Our Bibi cares for us but she is old and she cannot see. Sarah protects us. Sarah is eleven years old.
