Angela Murray went to Guatemala after completing her degree. What she discovered changed her life. She went to give, but stayed to receive. "I don't think anything can truly prepare you for the experience of working with street children," she explains. "It is so easy to think of 'street children' as one big group. Once you start working with them, they become individuals. A picture doesn't tell you what it smells like at the rubbish dump in Zone 3 of Guatemala City; a place that was home to young Oscar and many others. Only when you stand there do the tension and darkness really hit you. "This book seeks to be a vessel for the children themselves to tell their own stories, in their own words."
Angela Murray went out to Guatemala during her gap year to work with street children. She now works for the Consortium for Street Children, of which Toybox is a part. She lives in Chesham, Bucks, and has made a number of trips to Guatemala and Senegal. HP6 5YT
