My name is Walter Anesu Nyamukamba and I was born on the 27th of January 1996 at Saint Mary’s Clinic, Chitungwiza . My parents separated when I was in grade 2 and my mother went with us to her father’s house in St Francis Nhema, Shurugwi where I grew up with her parents. She was the one who took care of us and also struggled for the school fees and everything even clothes until I finished my primary level in 2010. I then proceeded to Secondary level and wrote my O Level in 2014 and passed 7 subject without mathematics and English. My mother was buying and selling goods in order for us to earn a living. Everything got worse when I was in form 5 and the last option was to drop out at school and work in the fields in order to help her support my little sister.
I was fortunate enough when I was about to drop school in 2015 and got into TARIRO. All things started to flow and brought me light and provided a bright future in my life. TARIRO group changed my life up to where I am right now and I also appreciate everything. Now I am doing the National Diploma in Wildlife Management and Fisheries. I am thankful and grateful because Tariro has provided everything like school fees, food and also stationary, clothing and blankets. After completing this National Diploma, I hope to go on to degree level and become a veterinary doctor. That is my dream.
Lastly I want to thank all TARIRO members in doing such a good job. You raised me and all my dreams are coming true.Read all News
