Photographer's Note

These are two girls from the Twatasha Basic School located in the Twatasha distrcit of Kitwe. The Twatasha Basic School has roughly 2000 students who share 12 classrooms. To try to meet the demand for school, the school has fours shifts of students a day with the youngest students starting school at 6.45 AM. Still the average class I visited had around 40 students in it.

As you can see here, children wear uniforms. Families have to buy the uniforms as well as paper and writing materials, a cost which means some children are unable to go to school. If children come without their uniform or materials, or arrive late, they are sent home. To top it off, AIDS is an ugly reality in this community and many of these children are missing one or more parents to the disease.
