"Wow Such beautiful photography and a sweet story."-

Lori Eigenman, Ed.S.

In Onika Wants to Help, four friends share how their lives changed when an inclusive school was built in their small African village.

It's fun to discover the interests of the four teenagers. Onika, Teophani, Elibeth, and Agnes all share what they are learning and how they will someday be able to help others in their village.
