A Conversation with Michael Nzuza and Mark Chennells: December 5 at 12 pm CT
School changed everything for Michael Nzuza. A young cow herder in South Africa’s rural KwaZulu-Natal Province, he was 15 the day he started kindergarten at Thembalesizwe Primary School in Eshowe Township. Desperate, he believed education was his way out of poverty. He was right.
Today, at age 47, Michael is a construction project manager for the Eshowe Community Action Group (ECAG), Africa Classroom Connection’s South Africa partner and the same organization that built both Thembalesizwe Primary School and Umfolozi High School, from which Michael graduated in 1995 -- at age 25. The classrooms he now helps construct, like the ones he attended, propel the life trajectories of South African youth like him.
