Namani: The light on Antonio focuses the eye on him very beautifully. You've captured him in a moment of remembrance of things which matter a great deal to him, possibly? Thank you for sharing these images./ejs

Namani's introduction

Posted 11:23PM on Tuesday, July 31, 2007 Pacific Time

My name is Námani Três Jocimeque. I'm an 11th grade student in the Macombe General Secondary School in Gondola, and I?m 18 years old. I'm a producer and presenter of the children's programme on the GESOM Community Radio in Chimoio. I was born on 10 March 1989 in the Cafumpe administrative post, in Gondola district, Manica province, and I'm currently living there.

With support from UNICEF and Save the Children, I was trained in questions of children's rights, the production and presentation of children's radio programmes, and journalism in Chimoio.

I had a passion for doing radio from the age of 14. So I approached people more experienced in the matter that I knew at GESOM and they gave me the space where every Sunday afternoon I talk with children from all parts of Chimoio city.
