African Au-pair

Most of the kids in Rwanda does not have a foreign student at home to take care about them. Luxury for many families is the fact, that the family is complete. Broken families are usually not able to provide everything for the children, so the older ones are becoming „African Au-pair“. They carry their siblings wherever they go, they work, so the family has something to eat. They have no time for school, no money, no possibilities to be educated. But kids need education, so they can change the future for them and people around.
