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.    

1


U2 was  the  band  and  it  became  a     famous  group  of  four.     They  wanted  to  save  the  world,  specifically  by   helping  the  poor.    

2


As time  went  on  the  band’s  fame  grew  and  grew.     So  Bono  co-­‐founded  four  organizations,  knowing   there  was  more  he  could  do.    

 

3


Debt, AIDS,  Trade,  Africa  was  the  first.     Although  this  alone  did  not     quench  Bono’s  thirst.    

4


EDUN was  then  created,  a  global  fashion  brand.     The  goal  was  to  give  the  African     fashion  industry  a  hand.    

5


The ONE  campaign  was  next  and  its  goal  was  to   fight  poverty  and  disease.     But  Bono  was  still  not     done  helping    those  overseas.    

6


Product Red  was  created  to  help  raise   awareness  of  AIDS.     Bono’s  development  work  would  never  fade.    

7


Everyone seemed  happy,  healthier,  and   stronger.     However  this  illusion  could  not    have  been  wronger.    

8


Critics said  that  he  was  just  doing  it  for  fame.     Trying  to  bring  more  credibility  to  his  name.    

9


The government  was  too  reliant  on  aid;  they   seemed  to  have  no  choice.     The  people  of  Africa  no  longer  had  a  voice.      

10


All this  might  make  you  stop  and  think.     What  was  meant  to  help  Africa  float  is  now   making  them  sink.
