POP INTERVIEW: Sylvia Allen on How She Helps African Children Live Normal Lives
Pop Goes the Week interviews Sylvia Allen and writes, "Like many of you, I have never been to Africa, nor do I comprehend half of what is happening in that part of the world without having visited. It is difficult to imagine what that world must be like in real life separate from what I have seen in quick news stories or heard from politicians, who briefly mention their own African voyages during campaign pit stops. Sylvia Allen is the founder of Sylvia's Children, a non-profit charity devoted to helping Ugandan children attain things we take for granted in the modern world, like water, education, health care and books, and e-mailed responses regarding her experiences working with her children, as well as chatting the ins and outs of heading the charity and its volunteer work with her biological son and daughter."
