Township 8 - Out of School

A trip to South Africa should include a visit to a township (accompanied by a knowledgeable guide to help understanding and to avoid "no go" areas).

Despite the ransacked state of housing, appalling by western standards, there was a real community. Shops, creche, places to eat & get a beer etc. Children and adults alike looked well fed and clothed and remarkably clean. The housing was absolute poverty, but in many ways the people were rich.
