The vision for the Children of Africa: South African Edition was born following the tremendous success of the Children of China book. After working together for many years, renowned fashion stylist Alethea Gold and award winning children’s photographer, Luca Zordan teamed up to compile a beautiful photographic book showcasing children in China with all proceeds donated to the Chi Heng Foundation to support orphaned HIV/AIDS affected children in central China.
Now, the team has turned to South Africa pledging their time, pro-bono, to the Children of South Africa project. With support from Sir Bob Geldof and the South African Government, Children of Africa: South African Edition is a stunning photographic journey capturing South Africa’s diversity and incredible beauty through the eyes and faces of her children.
100% of the profits are being donated directly to the Afrika Tikkun charity. Nelson Mandela is the Chief Patron and has said “This charity is working miracle”. All funds raised from the book and documentary will go to support a sports program to help orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa play sport.
The goal - Giving these children the opportunity for a better future by keeping them off the streets and out of trouble... building healthy self esteem and learning skills for a brighter empowered future - through sport.
Luca and Alethea are passionate about helping and empowering children all over the world. It is with your help that they can continue make a difference and share the magic of seeing the world through children’s eyes. By buying this book and using it as a corporate gift, you will give a memento to remember and at the same time help make a difference.
