“Education completely changed my life. As a child, born and raised in Zimbabwe, I was taught that education was the single most important thing in life. I received sponsorship to attend a good secondary school from a Rotarian sponsor. At the age of 16, I received a life-changing opportunity to attend High School at The Red Cross Nordic United World College in Norway.
I was blessed enough to be given the chance to attend the University of Reading with a full scholarship to study psychology and physiology. But with only £70 to my name and a ragged suitcase, I had to work part time to cover all my living expenses, and when not working, I studied.
Education opened the doors for me that were a dream growing up in Africa, and it is for that reason that on graduation day I vowed that one day I would give back the gift of education that had been so freely given to me. I believed if I could just change one child’s life, my life would be complete. In setting up Creating Better Futures, I have realised my dream, above and beyond my expectations”
