DIRECTOR: Gasica (Shafii Mwita Haji)

ZL4LF was set up by Gasica in 2006 when he was just 18 years old.  He is an inspirational communicator, leader and teacher. Although his life got off to a rough start he turned his life around, and he is now helping other youngsters to do the same.  He is an impressive motivational speaker and in October 2016 he was invited to the UK to address the District Rotary Conference to speak about his experiences and the importance of sustainable education.
