3 videos…

Welcome to the blog!

As seen on social media recently, one of our followers & former Pakati student Pauline Machengo, has put out a video compiled from pictures & videos I sent her. It is the last of the 3 videos from the title above, the other two were recorded during my recent trip to Zimbabwe.

Pauline is a film maker in her spare time & wanted to find out about how I came to be at Pakati. I wanted to hear of her experiences at Pakati & what it was like for her growing up there, and what she has done since.

So below are all 3 videos, starting with me interviewing her for Friends of Pakati

Prior to the visit Pauline had asked if we could meet & film an interview, so when I had a chance to go to Macheke, we decided during the brief time we had to interview each other!

This second film is Pauline asking me all about Friends of Pakati, fron how it started to what we were doing in Zimbabwe this time.

Here below is the film she put together & posted recently on a Whats App group & on facebook. We discussed & agreed the content of the commentary, so it has our approval as Friends of Pakati.
