Migrant Stories: A Picture of Youth Migration in Southern Africa
The migrant stories presented in this chapter provide an overall picture of the daily experiences of disadvantaged youth and how these experiences influence their daily lives and choices. Johannesburg as a destination of choice reinforces the idea of the city being the horn of Africa because of its economic activities and demonstrates why the city is the most populous in the country. For policy-makers, the chapter ought to be an illustration of why development programmes in this city should take into account current and future migrants, as this is clearly a destination of choice. Using the migrant stories, Mkwananzi further provides an understanding of the environment in which HE aspirations may be formed among migrant youth living in a context of disadvantage.
