Family picture

This year the BBC children’s television show Blue Peter chose Save the Children as its world service project. The girl in the green and yellow was one of five children selected to receive aid from this collaborative project.

Each year Blue Peter chooses children from Bangladesh and South Africa to receive assistance. This year, Blue Peter chose to work with Save the Children, a relief program inspired by the international children’s rights movement in England in 1919. Today the organization works to help children in need around the world.

These pictures were taken by Dr. Randall P. White, who was there as a representative of Save the Children.

The little girl is surrounded by her brothers and sisters, parents and grandparents when she received a congratulations package. Of all the things she chose to hold for this picture — among a package of food and provisions — she chose to hold the jump rope.
