After 20 years in the United States, graphic designer Saki Mafundikwa dropped everything and boarded a plane back home to Zimbabwe.

During his years working in the publishing industry in New York, he dreamed of one day returning to Harare to open an academy to train youths in graphic design.

The result is the Zimbabwe Institute of Vigital Arts (ZIVA); “vigital” meaning an education in visual arts by way of digital tools. Not just a skill, graphic design has an immense role to play in Zimbabwe and Africa.
