Proud Maramba, 24, studies business at Gweru Polytechnic College in Gweru, a city in central Zimbabwe. Holding a pile of books in his hands, Maramba boards a bus from his home in Mkoba to town every school day. Cheap schoolbags that his 60-year-old mother, an unemployed widow, can afford to buy for him cannot weather even one school term.
