Children's stories

Two stories

Videos on this website have been made with the help of youngsters living in and around SOS Children’s Villages, to create this evolving ‘Our Africa’ educational resource. On this page, we present short films the children have produced by themselves. The children choose their own subjects, which reveal something of their lives, opinions and ideas. This is Africa through their eyes.

SOS Children has been working in Namibia since 1985. The first Village was founded on the outskirts of Windhoek. Today, there are two others at Tsumeb and Ondangwa. Find out more about SOS Children in Namibia.

Here are two of the films produced by the SOS children of Tete:

Christmas family dinner

In this first video, Flora tells the story of how one family of children are rewarded for their success at school. First, they are taken on a trip to see the ‘big 5' game animals at Etosha National Park. And back at home, they're treated to a special Christmas meal.

Christmas comedy

To the background of ‘Mary’s Boy Child’ by Boney M, Zoodes and his friend promise to cheer up two homesick teenagers at Christmas. But it turns out to be harder work for Zoodes than he thought.
