Bringing Zambia's school drop-outs back to class

Changing the way people engage with education has become the life's work for Zambian teacher and entrepreneur Rozious Siatwambo.

He is the founder of the Great North Road Academy, an independent school in Zambia's capital, Lusaka.

The school encourages "drop-outs" of any age to return to education.

Projectors are installed in classrooms to encourage interactive learning and students unable to attend classes can enrol in distance learning at home through DVDs and CDs recorded at the school.
