A visit to the townships
1/8/2013 10:31 PM
Today we visited the township "Khayelitsha" the oldest and largest township in Cape Town with 1 million occupants. Our guide informs us there is hope for the community as we visit the local community center which has a gift shop that sells the artistry of single mothers in the community. The center provides early education for the children and has a workshop for the single mothers to make their crafts, which is their livelihood. Their speciality is the beautiful rugs that take up to 3 weeks to make. The sight of the township was overwhelming and like nothing I've seen before.
