This week, UNICA features in yet another exciting video entitled “8 to five heroes”. This video illustrates how much efforts people working between formal hours 8am to 5pm make great differences in their communities. The video was compiled by Vusumuzi Moyo one of the greatest young talented film makers in Victoria Falls. He has taken sometime to document and share with the world how small efforts done during formal working hours may change the world. Please take a few minutes and watch the video:
