Synopsis

Dogodogo Tanzanian Street Children Tell Their Stories by Kasia Parham, The Children of the Dogodogo Centre

With the help of their English teacher, eight young Tanzanians recount their experiences as street children - how they came to leave home, how they survived, how they found refuge, and how they still love their families. These moving and often shocking stories are illustrated by the boys themselves. Dogodogo is suitable for a wide range of audiences and can be read by students at either primary or secondary level. The text tackles a range of serious, global issues and provides many opportunities for discussion with more advanced readers. The title can be used to address a number of themes in the classroom including: the developing world; comparative cultures; homelessness; children's rights; community and family breakdown; poverty; infectious diseases; and, autobiographical writing and children's writing.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
