A charity is letting us see the lives of African children through their eyes for the first time.

The 'Our Africa' project run by the SOS Children charity gives children in Africa the chance to film and write about their everyday lives.

The kids experiences are then posted online for the rest of the world to see.

SOS Children hope kids in the UK will watch the videos and see how similar their lives are to those children in Africa.

The charity has been working in Africa for over 60 years and provides orphaned kids a home and a new family.

Since working in Africa the charity has supported and provided a family for 78,000 kids in 125 countries worldwide.

Nel went along to meet a group of school kids who have been getting involved with the 'Our Africa' project.
