Look out for the **Saturday Star** this weekend, first instalment of a longer story…here is a small taster

“….I had also to fetch water from as far as 2km and sometimes halfway back from the well I would fall and had to go back again to fetch more, this time I would be crying.”


My name is Chris Walker, and between January 1989 and September 1991 I worked, through VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas), at Pakati Secondary School in Murehwa South district in Zimbabwe. I was a Maths teacher for 2 years, the Acting Head for the last 8 months there. I have also taught in Botswana & the UK, had 4 years working for VSO, and have been a Civil Servant in Bradford since 2005.
