Bono and His Development Work In Africa A Children’s Storybook
Written By Celina Fazio, Sabrina Quazi, Thomas Gray, Sarah Smith and Sarah Alakas
Once upon a time there was a boy named Paul who was born in Ireland. He really liked signing and when he became older he decided to join a band.
U2 was the band and it became a famous group of four. They wanted to save the world, specifically by helping the poor.
As time went on the band’s fame grew and grew. So Bono co-‐founded four organizations, knowing there was more he could do.
Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa was the first. Although this alone did not quench Bono’s thirst.
EDUN was then created, a global fashion brand. The goal was to give the African fashion industry a hand.
The ONE campaign was next and its goal was to fight poverty and disease. But Bono was still not done helping those overseas.
Product Red was created to help raise awareness of AIDS. Bono’s development work would never fade.
Everyone seemed happy, healthier, and stronger. However this illusion could not have been wronger.
Critics said that he was just doing it for fame. Trying to bring more credibility to his name.
The government was too reliant on aid; they seemed to have no choice. The people of Africa no longer had a voice.
All this might make you stop and think. What was meant to help Africa float is now making them sink.
