South Africa

It's been weeks since I returned from South Africa to visit Indwe Learning Centers in Illovo.

The children tugged at my heart like I knew they would. They are strong, resilient, and altogether lovable.

The country is more beautiful than I imagined; the politics, more complicated. Because of AIDS, South Africa is home to thousands of child-headed households. It's hard to imagine children raising themselves - especially without advocates and a proper education. Indwe Learning Centers is working to change this, one step at a time.
