The Lives of Children Heading Families

Developed while researching child-headed households in five Ethiopian towns and their rural surroundings, this book presents the experiences and stories of individual child household heads. The stories are a sample of experiences of millions of children living in child-headed households across Africa, revealing both the gravity of their situations as well as the urgent need for action in terms of advocacy, policy and legislative development, social mobilization and program design.
