THE CHILDREN OF TOMORROW

The year is 2035

The 3rd World War has brought all of humanity to its knees, all we can do now is reminisce the world before. Africa, our beautiful motherland, our strong people, and our diverse culture now slaves to a new order.

Pray for our children for their blood is pure, as they are the key to our new tomorrow. Many of us wander this wasteland trying to forge our futures in our own hands, others pray hoping God will listen, but for those who have lost their way, influenced by power and the lust of the earth, converting back to their animalistic instincts.

The new order, a society forged by the hands of those who seek the power of God, shaping our broken world in their own image, no one knows who they are, but what is certain is that they roam among the darkness.

South Africa, ravaged by the repercussions of the war, a shattered economy produced a civil war as people turned to violence and crime, anarchy spread as the government collapsed and new factions emerged, some for the good of mankind but others fight for only power and destruction, converting our souls into the animal that lives inside us all.

And in this new world a single mother haunted by the demons that grasped her husband from her life, she must now fight to protect her only child from the dangers of the new world and the new order.

A child goes missing every five hours in South Africa, according to figures released by the South African Police Service Missing Persons Bureau for 2013. Missing Children South Africa’s statistic indicates that 77% of children are found. Sadly, this still leaves us with at least 23% of the children being either never found, trafficked or found deceased. Children are also the most vulnerable victims of gender-based violence. The reality is shocking and undeniable and we can no longer be innocent bystanders to this fact. It can happen to your child! – Missing Children South Africa


2.5 Million Children in South Africa Go Hungry Every Year, This decreases their chances of ever breaking the cycle of poverty. Africa Food for Thought (AFFT) is a charity that provides food security for children, in support of education. Currently supporting more than 17 000 children in the West Rand Johannesburg, South Africa in a variety of ways.

Thank you to our team, partners, sponsors and you, our audience for helping us achieve our first step towards something greater than ourselves. Even through a pandemic, and multiple setbacks, we were still able to bring our project to life.
