Portrait of Neneris

Nineteen-year-old Neneris lives in Chitungwiza, a suburb of Harare where the Women Advocacy Project (WAP) works. She left school last year because her family could not afford her fees. They still owe the school $150.

“I was in Form 4, I would like to go back to school,” Neneris told WAP. Her favorite subjects were commerce and math and she had hoped to one-day become a bank teller. “It would have been a good job,” she said wistfully. Zimbabwe’s unemployment rate is currently over 80% and like many of the women WAP works with, Neneris is not working. She now spends her time learning to plait hair.
