I grew up in the streets of Zanzibar

A personal story of Jaffar, who shares his experiences of growing up in Zanzibar and his struggle against addiction. He tells a story of lack of education, money and perspectives. He presents his world as an opposite to the “tropical paradise” myth of Zanzibar. His testimony is a reminder of how intricate the social fabric can be in places that we visit just for a vacation.
