Life exists outside of your comfort zone. If you ever get the chance to see someplace new, do it. If you ever get the chance to travel the world, do it. And if you ever get the chance to make a difference for those who need it, do it. The most beautiful things occur when you least expect it and in the least likely of places. For me, Africa is where the adventure began, but certainly not where it will end.
Safeena Kassoo, Editor in Chief, Better Globe Media, together with children in Child Africa
This photo was taken at Child Africa’s school at the equator. I was a tourist, overwhelmed by these children who had the most energy and happiness I have ever seen. They didn’t seem burdened by any of life’s worries — the struggles of work, the pain of relationships, the hardships that we believe we face daily. They were simply happy, in the most innocent ways. I’m happy to have this photo as a reminder that things are not always as bad as they seem, and that with our privileges we can get through anything.
