Former Pakati student Lorraine Mapuranga…some pics from home

Lorraine well on her way home

Lorraine is a former student at Pakati from the time I was teaching there. Please take the time to read her 3-part profile on here.

Getting ever closer…

One of several former Pakati students, she messaged me saying she was visting her family home close to the schools. She also delivered on her promise to take some photos around the area. These are some of those she sent…

I remember seeing the hill in the background every morning from the back of my home at the school
Thanks to Lorraine for showing us around!


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.
