Slum children trained to be martial arts actors in Uganda

Children take up positions as they rehearse for their movie roles during a martial arts class organized by local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and residents, in the Wakaliga slums of Uganda's capital Kampala, November 1, 2014. The slum-based children are trained to take up acting roles in movies which cover issues affecting their communities like child sacrifice, poverty, and theft among others. Earnings from these films have helped the children, who all come from poor families, to stay in school, according to the organisers. [Photo/Agencies]
