Owen with Elijah in Kenya in 2017 they met for the first time. We spent a week in Kenya painting with chidlren of all ages.
My name is Owen, I am 11 years old and live in France. For my school project I wanted to help, so I am now painting for an education too.
3.2 million children in the world live with HIV.
240,000 are born with HIV each year.
Without medicine 8 out of 10 die by the age of 5.
Only 1 in 4 have medicine (750,000 on HIV medicine)
HIV stops children going to school because they are often sick if they don't get good medicine.
Children with HIV need to go to school, because when they grow up they need to get a good job so they can look after themselves.
