FROM BASIC TO MASTERS - THE STORY OF GARTH AND MTIMA

This memoir offers a powerful glimpse into the harsh realities of life on the streets and the impact it has on young people. It's a raw and honest account of fear, pain, joy, hope, and ambition.

You can make a difference by sponsoring the publication of this memoir as a teaching tool in schools and communities.
