The Leaders of Tomorrow children with ‘Babu’ Pete Oneal at left, sister Mwajabu in the middle, and ‘Mama C’ Charlotte Hill Oneal. They’re on their way to the Tanzanian coastal village of Kikombe, in the big blue Leaders of Tomorrow bus. The bus carried them on rough roads from 7am-11pm with only one breakdown to the estate of a former International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda judge. The exhausting trip was well worth it for the adventure they had at the sea.
