At just 15, Tapiwa Shendelane is the youngest engineering student at Wits University. But that is not holding her back from getting the most out of university life.
A man from Hanover Park in Cape Town walked a total of 34km every day to get to university, and go back home. His journey ended with graduation this week. Now he is putting to work and is teaching the next generation at a local school.
With the aim of one school a week, hundreds of schools are being built or refurbished under the Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Initiative. All of these schools have enough classrooms, water, sanitation and electricity, and include libraries, computer and science labs.
