FOR most people, Francis Phiri’s tale can read as ‘a rag to riches’ story but that is his reality.

The challenges that he has been through most of his 30 years on earth could have had anybody give up on their dreams of attaining an education. But Francis refused to succumb to life’s challenges.
Francis recalls being brought up in Lusaka’s George township in an impoverished household. His community, according to him was equally poor. There seemed to be no way out. Unfortunately, at the age of 12, Francis became deaf after he was attacked by malaria. This predicament brought trials, which not only affected him, but his family and the community at large.
