In pictures: Lagos teacher

We live near the school, about a two-minute walk from the water's edge.

We also live with my father.

He is from Benin.

He came to Nigeria about 50 years ago.

He moved to Makoko because he is a fisherman. He also thought that no-one would chase him away.

He sent us all to school because people would tell him that education is the mightiest weapon.
