About the project
Why we stayed…
Every day I hear of more people I know emigrating followed by the litany of negative reasons why they are leaving South Africa.
Many students wait until they have completed their degrees and their first thought is if they can find a job overseas and leave. Young couples who want to start families start looking at opportunities abroad seeking the proverbial greener grass. Every, single, day I see emigration sales where people are selling everything they have ever owned to fly somewhere new and start afresh.
It feels like there is a mass exodus. One largely motivated by fear and despair.
