Last blog post before my trip to Pakati…

Well I am getting ready for my flight tomorrow morning….been busy packing and preparing for the trip to Pakati.

The plan is to be at Pakati on Thursday, bringing the goods with me. There is going to be some celebrations with the two Pakati schools and several local dignatories have been invited. Pictures, videos and stories will appear on here as soon as possible.

This is the culmination of my project since the idea was discussed between Mr Chifaka and myself in September 2018.

The project is ongoing still, as donations are still coming in. I hope to send more items in the future. But for now, I am almost ready….


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.
