The story of this comic album is based on interviews of street children made in the City of Mwanza, in northern Tanzania during 2006 and 2007. The characters of the story are fictional, but the events are mainly from real life. The amount of street children in Mwanza is exceptionally high, and more are coming every day. This story tries to explain why, from the point of view of the children themselves. By giving a voice to the children we hope to help solve some of the problems they are facing, and to make people aware of them.
We would like to thank the Finnish Cultural Foundation and the North Karelia Cultural Foundation for their grants that made the completion of this album possible.
Artists Sunday Ngakama and Sanna Hukkanen
