Meet the Refugee Giving Children the Opportunity He Didn't Have

Growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Amisi Mubale always loved music. But it was only after he came to South Africa as a refugee that he finally had a chance to learn the piano. Now a trained piano teacher, he devotes his life to giving children the opportunity he didn't have. Mubale teaches children impacted by lockdown restrictions who lack access to online education resources, writes Julia Evans for GroundUp.
