Children and their activities, Kanga Village 1985-2010

This sequence illustrates what children wear and how they amuse themselves (playing with homemade toys, dancing, football, the Swahili board game bao) but also the extent to which they help adults: caring for younger children, doing household tasks such as fetching wood and water and pounding rice (as can also be seen in the section on ‘Food and its preparation’). There are more pictures of children in the sequences on the Primary School and the Koran School.
