Looking for an education

For Lazarus, it wasn’t the World Cup that drew him to South Africa but the chance to get an education. As he puts it, “I left Zimbabwe because there were no schools”.


Now he has that chance. Support workers at the children’s shelter in Musina quickly helped to enrol Lazarus at a local school where he is learning maths, English, science and technology.
