our participants, Sindi and Nhlanhla playing with the background we used for students’ portraits.



a fellow student peeping out after class…


ever smiling Nhlanhla who is also in the visual project.

I don’t know why Tshili was so serious that day.
She is also in the photo project and capturing amazing visuals.

Behind every successful learner there is a woman.
