About the Book    About the Author

'Young Voices of the Nile' is the first of what we hope will be many books in the series that provides youth from different countries a chance to write about something important to them. This could be their pride in their country, family, a social issue or their favorite sport. Their stories are a way for the rest of the world to get to know something more about life in another country.

As inspiring as it was for us to be a part of putting this book together and seeing the energy, dedication and enthusiasm these children had to share their lives, we hope these inspirational stories for and by kids will be a welcome addition to your child's reading collection. 'Young Voices of the Nile' shares stories of over 20 african children (North American approximate equivalent of grades 5-7) from Uganda.

The book is a collection of writings and short stories by the sons and daughters of the 'mamas' who work at a small orphanage in Jinja, Uganda. The 'mamas' are the Ugandan staff of this orphanage and this affectionate title reflects their dual roles as mothers to their own children and as the primary caregivers. The orphanage (Amani Baby Cottage) cares for orphans (newborns, babies and toddlers) whose parents have either died, abandoned them or are unable to care for them at this time in their lives.
