JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - JUNE 5: Joseph Munyambanza, a student from the Democratic Republic of Congo gets dressed before the African Leadership Academy (ALA) graduation day ceremony in the school in Honeydew, west of Johannesburg, South Africa. ALA is a secondary school and about 3000 students apply every year. The most promising students are taken in and they get an outstanding education. Many are from poor backgrounds and receive financial help to study. The school's mission is to have the students work in Africa, to bring a change in Africa, and not get tempted to work in the US or Europe, where the financial opportunities are better.
