Summary: In this series the children- across barriers of race, class and gender are able to share in the most beautiful and sincere way some of who they are ... their cultures and their life experiences.  These programmes are little gems of hope and offer all children a natural and un-censored glimpse into the lives of ordinary African children. The series portrays - the most inviting and indulgent tapestry of lives that are no better nor worse than their fellow peers from around the world- with different backgrounds - ethnic groups or class and social orientation. The series shares intimate moments of the children's home and family life and these images give all children of the world a new picture - a clearer picture of Africa.
