Telling it as it is

It is so easy to sit in the UK and forget what the reality of daily living is for children in the Living & Learning project. The image above appears typical of children in a school setting; a school in the UK. But it is not and Seamus tells of such a child:

“There is a ten year old boy who attends, a small winning little boy, whose sole ambition is to grow up so he can kill his father. He jokes not. His father is a violent bully who abuses his mother. When he grows up he will be strong enough to kill him…”

In a way one does not want to know about children in these circumstances because one feels powerless to do anything to help. But actually we can and do by supporting Beth and the monitors in their struggle to provide children with a place where they can experience love and affirmation.
