From a Western perspective, it's not often that we get to see images of African children that aren't starving, in some form of bondage, or forced into fighting wars; it would be easy to forget, therefore, that African children, just like other children all over the world, have hopes and dreams that aren't always concerned with the basic needs of life - food, water, shelter, clothing...
